We Shall Be Moved

Organize! Agitate! Educate!

The clouds are shouting again,
cotton-soft and waning in their
sky-spun skins.

Organize! Agitate! Educate!

Cumulus knows the only way
to go is up. A cup of rain, every
drop in its place.

Organize! Agitate! Educate!

A quiet agitation
of blue. The careful cogitation of
every cloud
(gossamer, gangly, proud)


Prompted by Toads. Come play!

  1. This is delicious, clever and so funny. I must read it to my step-daughter. I just know she’ll appreciate the agitation.

    Aside from how cool this is from a narrative perspective, I am in awe of your wonderful way with the words – it’s like watching real magic happening.

    Such a wonderful perfect polished write – I wish I’d written it…

  4. The only way is up indeed. Agitation from the deep blue to the cotton soft sky spun skins. Rain it down.

    You have such a wonderful way with metaphors… I echo hypercryptical… I wish I’d written it too!
