From Away

i am a cloud along the sky

blown by wind,

i travel

sprightly by.

i see the kids

having picnics

with their parents



Transient as morning dew

dropped sometimes

to earth–

through glass i view

a family…

gathered at table.

i wave by twinkling


the light.

And so like light, I travel wan,

liked when I appear


life goes on:

and chlorophyll

turns saplings from seeds

into conifers


clouds pass
