TRAIL MIX
WALKING ON CLOUDS

This gloomy day
has you grumpy
Black clouds rumble in the sky
Come with me
I’ll show you my escape route
Take a deep breath
Ready
We’re going to leap onto that dark cloud
Really
It is easy
See the edge looks like an arm
hand out to catch you
One, two, three,
go

Now we walk through the sky
on clouds
sparkly white and buoyant
Who would imagine
their menacing underside
as we gaze from the sunny top
The sky
is endless blue from here
We sit for a moment
on fluff
and laugh at our escape
from the pain
yet we feel gravity’s tug
calling us back to earth

How do we get back?
you wonder
Not to worry
As the sun
slips into the West
it points our way
That cloud
colored orange
beckons us to slide
back down
where we land softly
on the rain soaked grass
ready for a quiet night
