moving on

and the bird thought
'I wish I was a spider'
weaving intricate, slow impossible webs
and as she wished
the tears made tracks on dusty leaves
the sun so merciless burnt soft wings
the trees began lowering towards the earth
and she sat there and thought
'I wish I wanted to fly away'
and as the angels passed by
some stardust fell from their palms
and she transformed
into a creature with black spindly legs
and she earnestly began
to weave a web
and then she waited for seven years
some people sometimes were entangled
and she asked them
'Would you like to stay?'
and when they said no
she let them go
and when she got tired
the angels passed by again
and she asked
'Is my web not good enough?'
'Sparrows can't be spiders little one.'
They said.
The stardust fell again
Her exquisite web became her gossamer wings
She joined the angels
and moved on

Both sides now

Joni Mitchell sums up clouds, love and life in one breath of an amazing song. And I agree with her...I really don't know life at all...


By Joni Mitchell

Bows and flows of angel hair and ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere, i've looked at cloud that way.
But now they only block the sun, they rain and snow on everyone.
So many things i would have done but clouds got in my way.

I've looked at clouds from both sides now,
From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions i recall.
I really don't know clouds at all.

Moons and junes and ferris wheels, the dizzy dancing way you feel
As every fairy tale comes real; i've looked at love that way.
But now it's just another show. you leave 'em laughing when you go
And if you care, don't let them know, don't give yourself away.

I've looked at love from both sides now,
From give and take, and still somehow
It's love's illusions i recall.
I really don't know love at all.

Tears and fears and feeling proud to say "i love you" right out loud,
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds, i've looked at life that way.
But now old friends are acting strange, they shake their heads, they say
I've changed.
Something's lost but something's gained in living every day.

I've looked at life from both sides now,
From win and lose, and still somehow
It's life's illusions i recall.
I really don't know life at all.
