The Death of Clouds

without knowing where they will end up
clouds leap down toward the earth
in the form of water droplets

they laugh and laugh
dancing through the air
so free

then splat!

the landing seems harsh
but the clouds simply adjust
into pools and streams

they reform
waiting, traveling, resting, running
happy in their new existence

the clouds then surrender
into the earth or sea
continuing a new life

with nowhere particular to be.

the laughter continues
as they are unafraid
enjoying every moment

the leap, the fall,
the landing, the joining,
and all the changes in between

can we go again?
they shriek with joy
just before they rise

back into the sky.


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
