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

far

below.

Transient as morning dew

dropped sometimes

to earth–

through glass i view

a family…

gathered at table.

i wave by twinkling

in

the light.

And so like light, I travel wan,

liked when I appear

as

life goes on:

and chlorophyll

turns saplings from seeds

into conifers

while

clouds pass
