Sonmi has been reading rather a lot of A.A.Milne of late, and, thinking of Pooh and his friendship with Piglet, and it has led her to consider those friends who have had to depart for distant destinations and dimensions, and follow other paths to our own. The warm simplicity of Mr Milne’s writing inspired her to pen the following lines – The Cloud

The Forest Will Always Be There. 

There’s something we have, that can never end,
The bond that is forged with a very dear friend.
There are times we must fly,
There are times we must drift,
But always look back upon those smiles as a gift.

And if when you’re travelling so far from these shores,
You catch sight of a cloud that reminds you of yours,
Let your heart be warmed,
Let your soul fill with glee,
For I am those Clouds and the Clouds are all me.

Isn’t that fine?” shouted Winnie the Pooh down to you. “What do I look like?” “You look like a bear holding on to a balloon,” you said. “Not,” said Pooh anxiously, “not like a small black cloud in a blue sky?” “Not very much.”
