....dream brings revelation....

I dreamed I was a cloud last night. 

Saw toy soldiers off to war, 

children kicking sand castles. 


I soared above the four-cornered world 

and saw multitudes of starving poor 

and wondered why god 

did nothing to ease their pain. 


But perhaps this thing, that some call god, 

is but a flame that bursts 

upon the scene, to flicker 

and then to die -- 

recurring endlessly, it seems, 

no more omnipotent than you or I.
