Beyond the Hills

Written by: aida melesse

As the cloud floats up in the hills
We watch it from a distance
We think we are so far away and can’t reach it..
And then in an instant, 
It brings itself to us
filling us with wonderments
of its changes-
We chase it 
as it transforms
into an elephant, 
a monster, 
a flying bird…
and before we know it 
our heads are encircled by it
becoming what it is, 
and we see what we are
beyond the hills
from a distance.
