“High, So High” – Paranaque, 27 September 2016

the clouds
float past
me
like a
dandelion puff
borne aloft
by the
wind
and i
long
to fly
with them
among them.

the clouds
drift above
me
like a
flock of
sheep
being led
to pasture
and i
long
to loll
to roll
with them.

alas:
here i
stay,
earth-bound
and fettered
to this
mundane life
discontent
with this
longing
to soar
to roam
to fly.
