TIME ON THE TIDE, PART 5; COTTON CANDY

 

Clouds come,
cover, congregate,
create contours
out of what was once
just colourless cotton candy
to catch us unaware
as we swim through
each other’s current,
currently without caution
and I wonder if we are
no more than clouds;
coming together,
creating colours
in between the shadows
before we fall too heavy,
too saturated, too needy
and comes the rain
pouring from the corners
of our eyes.

Clouds come, clouds go.

    Wow! Great analogy…, and, of course, so beautifully stated.
    I guess, it sometimes helps to come to the ground and re-connect with all that we are – so that we keep the balance and stay grounded as well as aware. We can choose how we do it, though: heavy as raindrops, reckless like hail, soft like snow or light as mist.
    Thank you for the wonderful food for thought, Dami!
    Much Love,
    Steffi 🤗😘
