When It Hurts To Walk, Dream Of Clouds

when it hurts to walk. dream of clouds
for so long floating about the Heavens
finding it so easy

sometimes dissolving, reappearing
multicoloured, a treat for the eye.
and you can be clouds too

and this is perhaps
why your feet don't work anymore,
the first sign that something is about to change

your ankles turning inward

to stand on one note patiently
in a vast music, a Faith and
little by little

you rise-
o it won't be long-
to the whole Song
