on this day

The clouds speak to me

tell me stories of how I was raised

by their water

they tell me

one day the sky broke in half

and I was born

on that day 

the sun kissed my cheek 

and promised to always touch my skin

on that day 

a thousand stars

fell and landed on my tongue

they would later give me the ability to speak

the clouds say I was more night than day

and that I was born with moons for eyes

and that my heart was the size of a planet

the clouds tell me these things

through the whispering wind

they speak to you too

all you have to do 

is listen
