Feather Cloud – Image by A Kehas

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Earth Evanescent” by Maxwell Anderson: frail, wild, endless, motes, helpless, lonely, empty, drift, seeks, candle, choked, ride

Frail feather clouds treading lightly

Drifting in the sky so slightly

Endless seeking for some meaning

Lonely as the clouds half dreaming to be timely

Wild spinning of atoms and motes

Of empty place, no other notes

Helplessly going for a ride

Choked with tears as he replied with all the in-quotes

The feather clouds treading lightly

And the candle burning brightly

The world is going as it should

Delighted as a lover could and so kindly*
