Thoughts Are Clouds

summer sky

Thoughts are clouds on canvas sky –

Some go idly drifting by,

Moved by whim or circumstance,

Shaped as concepts meet by chance.

Others draw conclusions there,

Intention giving studied air –

Captured by the artist’s mind,

Reflection paints each view refined.

Lest your work of art be marred

By thunder-heads, be on your guard;

Better than the stormy strokes

Are lovely thoughts that hope evokes.

    Thoughts “captured by the artist’s mind”…which you have done so masterfully here. Thank you for the gentle caution toward guarding my own.

      πŸ™‚ I need more than a gentle reminder sometimes! Especially when I am tired…they float in and take over when I’m down for the count and not as likely to fight back. Hmmm. A lifetime of practice for this one is called for, I think!
