Awake

The clouds were amazing. He looked up at the sky and took it in.

“This will be the last time in a while that I will see clouds.” He shook his head and there was a tear in his eye. Who am I kidding? This is the last time I will ever see clouds.

Von had been awaken the standard three months prior. Today was the last day before his departure. He walked along the playing field looking up at the sky. The sun was going down and the sky was filled with a myriad of beautiful colors. It was as if it was a present from above. The last painting of the Earth to be imprinted in his mind.

This was to last him the hundreds of years journey to his new home across the universe.

It is unbelievable, others said, the world that we were born on, grew up on, lived and loved on, was about to be gone. They were leaving the Earth never to return.
