What if the skies are mirroring us?
Within our great halls
The jollier we are the brighter the sun
Perhaps the surrounding laughter in the room
Is the blooming of flowers outside
Only their loud is their scent
The more we exhibit our wrath
Thunderstorms become artists carving leaks
Art lovers are those who place the buckets
After all, art does need such kindness
lover keep protecting the falling showers
And when is cloudy
Maybe it is us stuck in a mist of trickery…
Magic of how hope shows up in funny ways
