The Bright Blue

The Bright Blue
by Froggymama

Pushing this boulder up
a mountain.

it tumbles
over me.

I'm not a quitter. I start
at sea level, hoisting

that huge rock out of the river bottom. I thought,

if only it could see light, it would know

what it was missing. If I could just push
it to the top overlooking

the world it would know

what I was worth.

ten years later here
I am

broken to bits

looking up at the heavens
the bright blue

asking 'now what?'
