Imagine That

Fluffy white bear
Lying on its back
Feet up in the air
Happily playing
Oh, wait! Is that
A bear cub
Bouncing up
And down
On its furry feet?
Like a mom
With her child
Smiling, laughing
Not a care
In the world
Only one precious
Moment that can
Never be relived
That is how it goes
With pictures seen
In the clouds
If only the image
Could be recorded
A snapshot
Of the moment
Preserved for
All to see
But that would
Defeat the purpose
Of imagination
Where pictures last
Only as long as
The mind and
The wind allows

Both Sides, Now by Joni Mitchell

I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It’s cloud illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all
