clouds come floating

To Be A Cloud

I’d like to be a cloud
Formless – unexpected

I’d like to drink the clouds
Sudden and clear

I’d like to feel like clouds
Pure weightless and needed
Come and go and disappear

I’d like to breathe like clouds
Way up there above
Beneath and in-between

I’d like to be
Just be

“Fall colors are funny. They’re so bright and intense and beautiful. It’s like nature is trying to fill you up with color, to saturate you so you can stockpile it before winter turns everything muted and dreary.”

~ Siobhan Vivian

I’m a bit like a mad woman, scrambling to capture every bit of autumn color I can find. Heavy rains are expected later in the week and I expect much of the leaves will be washed to the ground. A beautiful season but far too fleeting…now why can’t winter come and go as fast?
