A Lonely Cloud


Silence reigned in the valley.
The lone pass was filled with snow;
No trees but tufts I could see,
Frozen rivers could not flow.

Only a lonely cloud there,
followed me along the way.
Galloping as lively mare,
seemed wanted something to say!

At once a leaf fell on ground.
Its color was deep, deep red.
Casting look no tree I found,
Thought I might have gone off head!

Then, the second leaf fell and,
the third, fourth, fifth on and on;
Was I in sorceress' land,
where none was living person?

The leaves were flying, flying..
The wind also strongly blew.
They danced then whirling, whirling,
like a ring of leaves they flew.

Surprised I then took a look,
Ah! I watched an awesome sight!
The cloud was moving as rook,
and raining leaves with its flight.

A lovely friend I then gained!
Cloud threw leaves and I caught them.
Laughingly, I touched my friend.
Thus we played our throw-catch game.

    A poem of displacement.
    The cloud scurrying by hidding all identity.
    You on a frozen plain of life, voidless.
    Leaves are past promisses fluttering down as forgiven lovers.
    You are collecting dead loves, harboring them in you heart.
    The cloud passes, leaving you alone...with dead leaves. (Report) Reply
