Michael's Chronicle: Clouds

Michael Thiele is a woodsmith who makes musical instruments and playable furniture. He spends most of his life either in the shop or out on the road buying wood and selling his work at craft shows. In recent years, his travels have begun to inspire his own writing, so he sends me his thoughts


Yeah, I watch em 
And why not?
They are vagrants just like I
And shape shifters

Adjustments are made
Change embraced
I admire their quiet strength
In the face of adversity
I am a witness

I have seen them collide
With mountains high and powerful
Unmoving, standing their ground
And change course, floating gracefully
Up and over and away

They have much to say
Of who we are
Who we can be
Reminders of the beauty and satisfaction
Of self determination

When I am frozen
With fear or anxiety or mindlessness
I look up and watch
The steady beating heart
Of that which lives in the moment

Yeah I watch em 
And why not?
Why not?
