"Out beyond ideas
of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field.

I’ll meet you there.

When the soul lies down
in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.

Ideas, language
- even the phrase “each other” -
do not make any sense."

These glorious words by Rumi were the prompt for this past week at Inspire Me Thursday. While I am very late with my entry I could not resist this idea of looking to the sky. I love clouds, and angels.

To me, if one is
"looking up
to the ancestors

finding with awe
and spirits
- nothing else would really matter

Thank you for visiting my blog and for your lovely comment. I really like your interpretation, too! In fact, there's a big similarity in the way we interpreted this prompt. The same blue color, the cocooned effect, and the clouds & angels symbolism...we seem to be on a very similar wavelength. I'm always seeing clouds as angels. Could be that angels use the stuff of clouds to show themselves to us, sometimes?

Yes, absolutely the angels show themselves. Clouds are the perfect place. Many interpretations - all so unique yet sometimes showing similarities.
Angels be with you.
