Mountain skies

By Anne E. Kidd
In the quiet
of my grandmother's

In the bedroom
up the stairs

Under the darkling sky
of a mountain

I never
closed my eyes

Just out
of elementary

Just close
enough to God

That belief
didn't have
to be cemented

And each truth

I could believe
in the dark
of those
mountain skies.
