Above The Clouds


the moon is always smiling against It's darkened shroud
the stars are always dancing to the abundance they bow
the clouds are always laughing so elegant and proud

so if your heart is broken and you are feeling down
and you can't find good reason not to scream to God aloud
O'God why have you forsaken me underneath this darkened Cloud

then just Run out side right now, go now

Dance with the Stars!
Smile with the moon!
Laugh with the clouds!

and just remember this:

the sun is always shinning you need only rise above those clouds

    I find these words fascinating, in the sense that while one may not find ultimate satisfaction in the fleeting moments of life, at least there is some substantial meaning to be discovered in the now of living, if only we seek it out, right here, right now... the sun is warm and bright and pleasing, just go out and into it. Beautiful thinking here Paul. (Report) Reply

    If only we could keep life on a simple plane, but we are complex creatures who must traverse beyond simplicity. (Report) Reply
