Sailing
By John Cannon

The clouds

sail

slowly on ―

at their own

easy pace ―

showing

no concern

for my anxiety,
for my rushing around,
for my hopes and fears
  about all I have to do.

I look up by chance,

I stop,

I look again,

I breathe,

I linger,

I breathe again,

I relax a little,

I breathe again ―

my hunched shoulders
slowly drop down.

I breathe

deeply

as the clouds

sail

slowly

on.
