Looking Around

by Anna Jaubert

Looking up into the blue
looking down into the blue
surrounded by salty air
surrounded by crashing waves
surrounded by nothingness

Look up and see no sky
look down and see no ground
surrounded by color
surrounded by flowery scents
surrounded by life

Look up to see pale paint
looking down to see soft floor
surrounded by filtered air
surrounded by comfort
surrounded by walls
