Clouds at 30,000 Feet

There’s just something
about clouds
viewed from the window
of an airplane in flight —
Something like Home.
Like the place
in all of us
to all
that has come before
all that is yet to be
and all that remains
after we’ve gone
from the earth.
Nothing left but
gathered in one place
for a time.
Mine Yours Ours
Refreshing the earth with rain
vapors gathering again and again
in another place
time after time.
Always changing.
Always the same.
Until the end of time.

About Sharon

Like anyone who lives long enough, I have experienced great loss and survived. I am convinced that my survival depends on my own participation in creating the reality I am living in, and I am determined to be a thoughtful and active participant/creator. These writings are my way of documenting that creation. As the song goes, "I will survive!" I chose the title Staying Vertical because I find that surviving isn't just staying on my feet physically. Keeping my thoughts and emotions on the vertical plane keeps me alive and moving forward. Thanks for joining me!
