Cloud Shadow

Like a cloud shadow defying gravity,
soul drifts slowly across inner landscape.
Sometimes bending to caress bowed head
or breathing bubbles of joy into bloodstream.

Never leaving shoe prints, only occasional
bread crumbs to capture attention, she threads
careful way into all human senses, sending
wind-whispered messages, while constantly

salting plans with grams of truth.

    Beautifully stated, Elizabeth. I like the idea of the soul drifting across the inner landscape. That resonates with me. As does salting with grams of truth.

    Speaking of truth, I would appreciate your perspective on the poem I shared today in Pantry! You will know the characters.
