Lay up on the hammock of earth – grounded –
swaying to and fro with the rotation of moments.
gaze upon the clouds of your thoughts,
hovering in the sky above.
Bouncy bubble gum & heart-shaped thoughts,
light wispy feathers and cotton candy clouds.
There are other thoughts sharing that sky.
Fire-breathing dragons. Coiled poisonous snakes.
Fat dark clouds of misfortune.
you are not these clouds.
they are but distant shapes-
pulled and pushed apart by the wind.
What about the fog?
Clouds so thick, wet and low –
they become indistinguishable from another.
Snakes conceal themselves as cotton candy,
Fire impersonates feathers.
You are not these thoughts.
They are but passing shapes –
dissolved instantly with sunshine and light.
