wrapped in a blue cloud cloth
Langston Hughes writes..."Bring me all of your dreams,
Bring me all of your heart melodies,
That I may wrap them in a blue cloud cloth
Away from the too rough fingers of the world."
The winter days seem to stretch out in long and endless minutes for many people. It is not an easy season. And it reminded me of the "rough fingers of the world" that Hughes writes of. We have to wrap our dreams carefully and take good and gentle care of ourselves in these long days of rain, of cold, of ice and snow, and wrap ourselves in care for the even longer nights. These words go out to a friend whose night may seem very, very long. May she know that the morning will come. That she is not alone. And that she has given the world some melodies from her heart. A bit of humor too!
