We Spoke of Clouds

Ours were lofty plans

no one ever understood

that really was the plan

~

soft sunsets in woods

we lay in one another’s arms

playing with our moods

~

looking in her eyes

seeing clouds in satin skies

long before any lies

~

nature left us bare

with little consequence – love

dance within my dare

~

as a child winter

would freeze – bone chilling icy

clouds would love deter

~

In a still moment

I can still hear her laughter

winter’s freeze lament

~

starry starry eyes

yours would I remember when

I glance toward skies
