Cloudy within without
Flat haze no edge or shout
Summer wanes gone sun’s kiss
Path gray muddy fading bliss

How to handle empty inside
No motivation for life’s ride
Fear of what lies ahead
Want to lie low back to bed

Know you want much more
Life allowing you to soar
Be joyful within your time
Make sacred rhythm and rhyme

Decide darkness or delight
Choose to move without fright
Foggy horizon a dangerous view
Find clear sailing that is true

Life is suffering Buddha said
We do to avoid moving instead
Know it’s so
Life follows where you go

Illusion and fog contain gifts
Demand a clear mental shift
Dwell on cloudy get into it deep
Choose diversion go back to sleep

Remember best way out is through
Let cloudy make friends with blue
Stay authentic in your core
Life the lesson you’re here for

What clouds your life and how do you respond when gray arrives?

What value do clouds bring?
