Clouds... and life (poem)

Image Source

Collecting drops
reminiscent of ants
Spreading the smiles
with their tears

Drifting together
yet strangers
Sad and lonely
crying their pain

Temporary, ever-changing
Colors and shapes
just a mask -
Clouds... and life

      Yes, the clouds can so easily be metaphors for what we feel, I think...
