Clouds rewrite exercise

an exercise from Miriam was to rewrite my last poem, throwing out rhymes and putting things in different words about how i feel, as if i were describing it to someone in another language. i’m not entirely sure i hit the mark…

wispy trails connectedless
floating peacefully
deep sea dreams
care-free wandering peace
soft breeze
growing rounded
say hello while drifting
looking over the land

dawn rays of light
bright after the night
revealing worlds
tall shadows growing short
standing tall reaching
longing for a touch
from a lover’s embrace
never they meet
