(140 Words, #83) Followed By Clouds

Ever wondered why clouds move across the sky the way they do?

It’s not because of science, although some scientists may tell you so.

It’s not because of magic, although some free-wheeling hippes might convince you so.

Clouds move across the sky because they are following something.


Hollowland is a big world. There are continents vast as other entire worlds, mountains that tower to the reaches of space, rivers wide enough to hold a city in their grasp.

Today it is the workings of clouds, which cover the surface of our planet, that interest me in this discourse.

Who are the people that clouds follow?

Are they blessed beyond comprehension, or perhaps cursed?

Are the clouds a sign of the blessing/curse, or are they simply attracted to it?

So many questions.

Is that a cloud following you sir?
