Cloudy Is My Home

 

 

Cloudy is my home
The entire earth is cloudy too.
From the top of the mountain pass; busted, beaten and drunk
the wind whirls downward.
The world is overwhelmed by it
And so are my senses!
You, piper, who has strayed from the road,
where are you?
Cloudy is my home
but the clouds are on the verge of weeping.
I dream of those lost bright days
that slipped through my fingers
I look at the vastness of the sea.
And the world broken, beaten by the wind.
And on the road, the piper continues to play
In this cloud-filled world
His road stretching out before him.
