I'd like to be a cloud anyhoo
fluffy like Gabriel
But if the sky was falling
I'd be more useful as a hole

and what would you be doing as a hole?

i am wondering if the sky were falling and a cloud were to rise in those circumstances......what would that create?

I'll become a cloud and I'll fall with the sky, and then I'll tell you the trip.

Yes, i would become a cloud to be like a blanket that covers all who were feeling cold and lonely....letting them have warmth and hope that even when the sky falls ....it doesn't matter ....because the cloud still can protect :)

yes of course :))

Raji said...

How could i? No sky means no clouds too.

anne artist said...

i am remembering the children's story....was it chicken little who sat beneath a tree and an acorn fell on her head and so she thought the sky was falling?

if you became a cloud, maybe you could investigate and send me a message about the sky......you could send me raindrops.....instead of a message in a bottle, it would be a message in a raindrop.

I'd become a hole so the sky could fall into it safely. The Whole of the sky in the hole of me.

A story that a could would tell could be light or stormy depending on circumstances.

anne artist said...

thank you for clarifying, l.l. that is what i thought you meant, but, due to this week's question, i did not want to assume i understood something that i did not.

and as you sent me stories in the raindrops, might you be also recreating how i regard the sky?

Clouds are only water that can't take the heat. If you told me that the sky was falling, I would wish to become a mountain so I could hold it up. But would I? Rarely is our courage tested to the point that we become mountains, as it is very easy to become a cloud.

anne artist said...

mwb, as usual, i really like that your comment takes me to an image i would not have imagined on my own.

i am wondering if a mountain must exert energy to hold up the sky or if it can do so simply by being a mountain.

and also, does it take courage to float in the sky?

anne artist said...

i have been listening to townes van zandt's "to live is to fly" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JGc2CvM0EQ)

there is a line in it "we've got the sky to talk about."

if the sky is falling, newness would replace what we often take for granted. maybe we could see the stars, even in the daytime. what would fall? the color blue? would the sky become green and the ground blue?

if you became a cloud, would you float on the ground?

Lazarus Lupin said...

Odd I was listening to "What condition my condition was in." where he tripped on a cloud and fell five miles high.

I just hope we aren't lonely clouds. Let's cover the sky like sheep even as it falls.

anne artist said...

and from the sheep, would could spin wool to make blankets in which to curl up and watch the sky floating beneath us.
