Clouds are flowing in the river...
The photographs and the poem together remind me a bit of Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. Just the right amount of silliness mixed with curiosity and a wondrous outlook on life.
Clouds are flowing in the river, waves are flying in the sky.
Life is laughing in a pebble. Does a pebble ever die?
Flowers grow out of garbage, such a miracle to see.
What seems dead and what seems dying makes for butterflies
Life is laughing in a pebble, flowers bathe in the morning dew.
Dust is dancing in my footsteps and I wonder who is who.
Clouds are flowing in the river, clouds are drifting in my tea,
On a never-ending journey, what a miracle to be!
