Offcloud

clouds

As I think, I speak.

Really?

As I speak, I do.

Not really.

The thought does not always become the deed.

Deed, indeed.

For the mind clouds over.

Inaction.

The dark cloud on my horizon?

Never.

Inaction is now a habit and defines my character.

Under this cloud, I thrive.

My head in the clouds, my feet on the ground,

I have it all.

Not for me, your world, love and concern.

Don’t cast your shadow on me.

I unthink.

Why do you presume to disturb the air around me?

I unbecome.

You are just a passing cloud.

Uncloud.

  1. The mind crossovers, the helplessness in cruising through the shadows of such clouds ultimately culminating in inactions or deeds never intended to be ab initio ! A victim of dichotomy ! May the conscious unclouding pave the way to higher equanimity ! A contemporary lovely write Sailaja , Great times!

  2. I just love this brilliant poem & picture! Really gets you thinking? I could read 100x’s, and yet, “you are just a passing cloud…” great prompt for letting those endless thoughts go.☁️☁️☁️☁️😀
