This is shown in the first paragraph where it says, ?You can never have too much sky. You can fall asleep and wake up drunk on sky, and sky can keep you safe when you are sad. ? Another theme that is portrayed in this chapter is the theme of sadness and emptiness. Throughout the story all of the characters have something that they wish they had more of and for many of the characters, especially the women, what they want is freedom. This theme is used as a metaphor similar to how sky was used.
It said, ?Here there is too much sadness and not enough sky. Butterflies too are few and so are flowers and most things that are beautiful. ? This shows that all of the characters wish that they had a little more in their lives. Throughout this chapter Sandra Cisneros uses different metaphors and common themes to keep the reader interested.
The sky witch represents freedom is one of these common themes that are used.
