The poem “The Sky Is Confused”, by "Karen" from Pittsburgh, PA captures the picturesque beauty of different seasons in nature by personifying the sky as her own mind and thoughts. Like the weather, the narrator’s thoughts differ daily and are constantly changing. This may be a literal interpretation of the phrase: the weather has a mind of its own.
Not only did the author capture the feeling of each season, she created a haunting mood and had readers questioning which lines referred to the sky and which to her own personal experiences. As we progress father and farther into the poem, we learn more about the narrator through her descriptions of the sky. She uses phrases like "wriggling from the tight grasp of an autumn tree" and "drooping down like a homeless man without a sweater in November" to evoke emotions in her readers with clear imagery and clever wording.
