Strings of Clouds
by Maria Isabel Cecilia Pascual
How I wish I could fly amongst the flock of royal birds in the skies,
~To feel the great wind and see the Sun god in full view.
Reach heaven and touch the white clouds above,
Collect the fluffiest ones if I may...
String them one by one like a necklace,
To adorn my bereft bossom torn by woeful thoughts;
~ ~ ~
To douse and cool down the blazing fire of my soul...
Note: Wistful thinking of a woman going through bouts of hot flashes! :)
