Night Parade

Saw a parade

At night

In the deep blue-grey sky.

Floats of clouds

Fat, fluffy ones

Skinny, sleek ones

Snowy white ones

Rose and lavender tinted ones

Drifting by.

Thousands of bare tree branches

Line the parade route

Waving their limbs in greeting like excited children.

Now the parade is over. 

Some of the spectators are still,

But the rest of us continue to wave

Unable to contain our delight.
