Memo from a Passing Cloud OR Sound Advice


Most if not all of us fancy we see faces in clouds from time to time, clouds that travel the world over. 

Maybe, then, we should listen to as well as watch out for faces in passing clouds from time to time…?

Fanciful, you say?  Yes, of course, but sometimes what we digest can do us a whole lot of good…so long as we can keep it down  rather than throw it up because we feel guilty for fancying it in the first place.

MEMO FROM A PASSING CLOUD or SOUND ADVICE

Listen to the rain
telling tales on people
running for cover

Listen to the trees
telling tales on people
cutting to the quick

Listen to the birds
telling tales on people
shooting them down

Listen to the fishes
telling tales on people
poisoning the seas

Listen to the worms
telling tales on people
doctoring the soil

Listen to the wind
telling tales of people
on life support

Listen to the people
marching for the planet
while we still can
