hitch a cloud ride

sky b

the sky
is big today

it seems
almost endless

I know that’s a foolish thought
but
the clouds seem
up so high

as though they’ve come
from a long way

and have a long way
still to go

while
here am I
just gazing

a pedestrian
terrestrian
alongside their long road

should I venture
one step

or two

should I
extend my thumb
to hail one down

sky a

who knows
where a ride like that
might lead

perhaps it would just go
on and on
or maybe
it would lead
up
to the sun

the sky
is so big
today
I feel so small

I think I’ll hitch
a cloudy ride
and ask to be taken to
a nearby
star
