A Cloud a Day Project

How many days go by
Eyes fixed to the ground
Glued to a screen
Hazed and dazed
‘Til it’s time to close

What if instead
They looked up
To notice what’s there
Beyond the familiar bubble
Perchance to dream

Clouds change every day
Based on where you look
What place you’re in
What nature is doing
Where your mind drifts

Just sitting up there
Waiting to be noticed
To be admired
To be imagined
To be fantasized about

A cloud a day
Is a fine place to start
To be more mindful
To remember to look around
To find inspiration in unlikely places
