Kaleidoscope: Sky


Welcome to Kaleidoscope your source for arts and entertainments created in Wester Hailes by local people!


Sky – why so blue up there
when I am grey doon here
on this July morn when Sun Baby comes oot to play?

Sky swished her silk kimono
“Little man you know so little
– I practice Mindfulness which hoovers up useless thochts
leaving me feeling peaceful and empty
this the Dalai Lama hath tocht tae me…”

“WAAH!       WAAH!!!      WAAH!” Sun Baby gurgled
(For it is only 7:22AM)

I answered nowt because

  1. A didny ken the sky could talk back
  2. A dilly like Alternative Therapies (no disrespect to his Holiness the Dalai Lama)
  3. Useless thochts are my stock in trade
