Were I a cloud

Spread the love


I believe in every walk with Nature, one receives far more than he seeks. And so, I made my way through with a mind to mount up to the purest sky. Were I a cloud, would attempt to sweep through mystic thread of life; listen to hushed murmurs of water, for its by no means a waste of time. ‘The world is hard and cruel’ as such was written upon arched sky, give thanks for what you are —  and keep fighting for what you’d want to be tomorrow. I breathe in good thoughts skipping across a placid pond. The sky above was clear — as though gleaming crystal  — the air around me spoke in a tone both hushed and sweet. The atmosphere soon filled the heart with delight. I think I may have discovered some hidden secrets of life.

Twilight sky
mingling with emotion
a waltz with nature.

  1. Nature is the perfect teacher… We walk and seek the secrets in the sky, and so often find it in ourselves – one of the purposes of wandering I think

  4. Only by embracing nature, the natural world, does life mean anything. It is beautiful, resilient strong and give us a feeling of serenity. Let’s hope we can always respect it. What a beautiful haibun Sanaa.
