Today the clouds visited earth,
in sweeping and shifting gauze
they swayed teasingly back and forth;
I breathed its droplets as I walked.
Skin felt rosy and refreshed
I am not sure about the lungs,
earth was happy and renewed
Even roses came out and shone.
Sun rays gently warmed the air,
the gauze thinned here and there,
mystically revealed and hid
parts of trees, branches, gables and spires.
What a delightful morning it was,
so much intrigue this dance exposed;
Made me think of us, our lives,
often harried with worries, wanting,
seeing fears ahead that might never come;
Rarely letting each day be revealed,
each wonder and delight,
each difficulty to combat at the time.
But for now I am here,
seeing the mystic, the clarity.
