Cloudy Street

I stroll upon a cloudy street

the sun hot on my head

it’s mushy under my bare feet

along this cotton bed

 

darker grays

brighter grays

shades of white

in the sun’s rays

 

blue chalk streaks

purple leaks

across the sky

 

pockets of brighter blue

the kind that make you smile

I step across the silver lining

and gaze below awhile

 

mountain peaks and river threads

look up to say hello

I wave to them from overhead

lakes smile from below

 

entwined

bright lines

all glowing in

the sunshine

 

sparkling vines

then combine

reflection

 

walk with me on Cloudy Street

the sun will warm your head

the air will cool your small bare feet

rest on this cotton bed

 

darker grays

brighter grays

shades of white

in the sun’s rays

 

blue chalk streaks

purple leaks

across the sky
