June 16, 2010 “Clouds”
My heart’s missing lies not earthbound,
Not tangible, nothing of it material
Nor made by hands, or built on ground,
But like a vapor; ethereal.
It can no longer here contented be
With water, earth, and air
In prison dark, shackled by gravity
My heart seeks its mine, elsewhere…
Elsewhere in the blue, out beyond the sea,
On toward the fleeing sun,
Where angels fly and souls are free…
Life’s tethers all undone.
Searching for its only, never for another,
Flying free from dinning crowds.
And in that moment it finds its other
Waiting patiently in the clouds.
