Somnolent I stand
By the banks of the grassy river
and let the warmth surround my toes.
Night has surrounded me
and I can no longer see their shadows.
I lay in the cool crevice of the earth
surrounded by the sounds of gun shots.
My ears are full with their cry
coupled with the hush of the comforting mothers
as the mosquitoes dance along my skin.
The frogs scurry
along in search of food and shelter
making their way to another place.
I look up and see the sauntering clouds
gently kissing the sky.
I close my eyes and wonder
Who else will notice the sauntering clouds?
As they move effortlessly and quietly
to the earth's calming rhythm.
Making their way to another place.
Just like me.
