Clouds

entry picture

One of my favorite games 
to play as a child 
was seeing shapes 
in the clouds: 

Dogs, cats, 
elephants, giraffes, 
airplanes, unicorns... 

It was one of the 
few pleasures 
of my childhood. 

As I grew up, 
I began to see 
scarier things:
 
Dragons, demons, 
torn hearts,
flaming arrows... 

Now in the archway 
of my golden years, 
I see beauty that 
brings me to tears:

Towering rays of light, 
eyes of loved ones, 
outstretched arms,
open hands...

and I could swear 
I hear angels singing
on a distant shore,

saying, hold on
there's more...

I enjoyed reading this poem
- and then I went back and really read it - and loved it -
- and then I went back and really read it again and lived it.
It's magical.
