shades of overlapping blue...

"I know this sky, its shades of overlapping blue. I've memorized its patterns, the wispps of the northern lights. From here, I can't see the colors in the aurora borealis, only the white funnels against the night.
I know the crab apple trees, the weeping willows, the Manitoba maple trees. I know the layout of streets, the flow of the Winnipeg River, the rustle of bulrushes in summer. I know the Canadian geese, the blueberries, the shapes of moss and lichen, the sour-sweet taste of rhubarb."

From "Maya Running" by Anjali Banerjee.
