unfinished world

I remember when sky was blue
mostly blue, except for the clouds
blue, but not at sunrise or sunset
blue, except at dawn or dusk
when sky was likely orange or red

I remember when sky was blue
yes, blue!
not just a hint of blue
but fullness of color
in sky above

... and green things grew unaided
without care
until now
