Cloud tree

cloud tree IMG_0040 10.4.15

A migrating swan dropped a seed
the fluffy clouds allowed it to grow
slowly it grew
spreading its branches
in all directions
its roots embedded deep in clouds
allowed it to stand tall
when lightning flashed
thunder growled
and high winds stewed tempests
it captured the dreams, hopes
that escaped from hearts
and kept them in his branches
with every rain they came down
to make home in hearts again.
