I wasn´t so in love with the clouds.
I was rather scared –

for they thundered and lashed

and soaked me wet…

chilled me down to my bones.

And then you came into my life

with your dark, rumbling clouds.

Well…actually, it wasn’t you;

It was I …with my baggage on my back

I came and settled into your heart.

And your clouds settled in mine.

They are like a fairytale…

or a dream…

suspended on your gray skies.

As if they know

that’s how I love them –

holding the promise of thick droplets

and yet holding back…

Gently gliding down

to envelop you and me

in their embrace.
