Nothing complex. Just find a nice sun-dappled meadow, kick back ...and relax.

CONSIDER THE CLOUD

 

Ah, to be a floating cloud

..........of gossamer vapor,

..........of soft, downy white.

To wander about

..........over rolling green plains,

..........over rollicking sea,

..........not a boundary to sight.

As one with the sky,

..........with the birds,

..........with the wind;

..........no feet to the ground,

..........no roots bind me in.

Freer than freedom

..........to travel the air;

....................look up springtime,

....................noontime,

....................anytime.

 

....................I'm there.
