I Asked

I asked the sky why it was blue
And it
smiled and blew the clouds away
I asked the
wind why it was dark
And it
frowned and made the trees sway
I asked the
tree why it swayed when the wind blew
And it
sighed and shook its leaves
I asked the
sun to shine
And it
shivered and burst right out
I asked the
flower to open and dance
And it did and the
others followed
I asked the
North Wind why are your brothers so loud
And they
settled down
I asked myself
what was missing
And the
moon lightened and smiled
 clouds furled away
 stars ignited
And I kept quiet
And everything was perfect.
