Have You Taken Time?

  • Have you taken the time
    • To lie on your back
    • And watch the clouds?
  • To daydream of what
    • Shapes the clouds make.
      • To imagine a face
      • In the clouds of someone dear.
    • These are special moments.
      • They are not replaceable.
    • The real world recedes
      • And a personal one is revealed.
  • It is your world.
    • It awaits you.
  • I visit mine often.
    • It beckons to come back regularly.
  • I am refreshed and relaxed
    • By the minutes spent watching,
    • Imagining, and daydreaming.
  • Ideas are formed and transformed.

  • Watching clouds is more than a pastime with me.  I love to watch white and fluffy clouds, very high almost transparent, the spectacular multi-colored sunsets and sunrises.  I even stand outside to watch the storm clouds and lightning. 
  • The images and shapes are unlimited.  The stories they have told me would make wonderful movies.  Actually, the clouds were movies of ethereal dimensions. I have seen whales and sea-serpents.  I have seen everything from giants to leprechauns and all things in between.  I have seen Charlie Chaplin. and even Mickey Mouse.  The images are limited only by my imagination.
  • Have you taken time to just watch the clouds in the sky?     What  have you seen?

  1. I’m an avid sky watcher. Clouds and the sky figure in many of my aphorisms. They’re a constant source of wonders.

  2. When I get an email telling me that you have a new broadcast it always brings a smile to my face and raises my expectations of what it will be like and this posting when I read it as always did not fall short but rather exceeded my expectations by a country mile. Keep up the great writing my friend.
