How precious then the view

Clouds

by RGstar

Clouds
---------<@


From a distance we compare...of each other, aware
Perplexed, we deem and judge, at times pretending to care
Canned in colours, we react: hope, like coffee, tea, extract
Own tastes then add, subtract...with indifference, enact

---------<@
Then there are clouds that bask up high, lazed, billowing free
Effortless, they preside, over land and mighty sea
On a breeze they glide, while, we, in ignorance, collide
Such like silken threads they thrive, as we, in fear, divide

----------<@
How from clouds we ought but learn, so as to none concern
Peace should one discern, where as yet, we are yet to learn
Caught in mirrors, our masquerades--faint smiles bound to fade
For at our ends, there are no shades, only dues that must be paid

----------<@
How silent willed then clouds, as souls, refined, pass through
No voices loud, or heard, just wings in a perfect blue
So, like butterflies anew, arise the chosen few
How precious then the view, you and I amongst...we too

-----------<@
Perhaps a day, if ever a time...man, love enshrouds
If then so, I'll wish, with you, a place beyond the clouds
