In Their Eyes
for children from the skies of Thailand
live on top of a mountain which is very high above the clouds.
Sometimes at night we will take a blanket or a sleeping bag and go
out into the jungle. We find a nice grassy place without any insects
and place the blanket down. Then we all lie down and look at the sky.
Many people say that the night sky is dark. Perhaps it is in some
places of the world but here on top of the mountain, where the air is
so clear, it is brilliantly light. Some evenings we can see the moon
and we all try to find the face of the old man in the moon. At other
time we can see ‘The Milky Way’ which looks as though someone
spilt a bucket full of diamonds over some black velvet.
