Heart of a Cloud

Be surrounded
With tolerable information

White interior of a cloud
Insulated from news broadcasts,
Cell phone interruptions,
Instant messages on i-pad

This monastery,
A refuge from
Cloying data…
Had enough of that

Hover above Earth
Enveloped in mist
Incoming tide,
Full moons’ milky glow,
Gauzy sunlight

All those decisions
Choices…
Gone

Comfort in the
Heart of a cloud

  1. Good one Dad!

    My favorite part:

    Hover above Earth
    Enveloped in mist
    Incoming tide,
    Full moons’ milky glow,
    Gauzy sunlight

    How many moons? or is it moon’s?
