Poem: ‘Clouds’

I’ve been watching clouds, ideas floating in my mind, sometimes hidden behind veils of confusion and deceit, or often not there at all. Then the blue sky reigns, like a short cut to heaven, where the breath seems sweeter and life so much richer, connected to the source of all joy and awareness. And when the clouds return, like single thoughts intruding, I know they will pass

The mind fixes upon light
Thoughts settle on peace

Life is short, they say
Pain seems interminable
They are relative
