This is just my latest form
though few will stop to wonder
what I am and where I’ve been
before my molecules disperse asunder

Yesterday a cloud, then snow
melting beneath the warming sun
forming with your breath and tears
My transforming journey never done

My essence part of clouds and oceans,
meandering woodland streams
shimmering in rainbows and sustaining life, timeless
outlasting ephemeral political regimes

  1. Superb poem, Carol. Such wonderful writing with intense beauty and sense of peace exuding from it. I had to smile at the last line, even here politics and its transitory nature gets look in. ‘outlasting ephemeral political regimes’.

    1. Thank you for your thoughtful, lovely comments, Annika. From what I know of history, political regimes are ever ephemeral and wars to gain power, never-ending. I sincerely hope that we can learn to wage lasting peace in our times. ❤
