To a T
My thought paused where paths intersect,
it knew which way was right
but what was left to know
was much more interesting that night
‘tis true that to the right
was where all sensible thoughts would turn;
avoiding less trod tracks, devoid of facts
where questions burned
but this thought had a mission;
to discover poetry
and he risked the world’s derision.
That way suits him to a t

Walter’s cloud theory: A cloud should fulfil its purpose of conveying something of substance which, upon precipitation, may nurture growth in the earth. A cloud should be impressive in itself; beautiful, awesome and individual; it should evoke feeling. A cloud should engage its audience and inspire them to find an echo of their own imaginings and create their own personal meaning. And in my own creations I will aim to emulate the clouds.
