Clouds

Carpe Diem "Time Glass" #9, 
Clouds

What child has not laid on their back looking at the cloud formations.  Imaginations running wild and seeing with eyes that hold only hope.  Undiminished by worries of every day needs.  In fact there probably are children that do worry about food, shelter and even caring for siblings.  I think of the stories of the Lost Boys in Africa.  I think of the stolen girls sold into bondage.  World wide abuse of the simplist thing, childhood.  But I suspect that possibly even more than the child that has food, shelter and adults to care for them the lost may look to the skies and clouds for hope.
