The Little White Cloud
guardian angel is closing the gate behind you, and your garden is
beautiful. The colors are so rich and luxuriant, with that deep blue
sky and the sun a radiant golden ball. And there are perky white clouds
you go down your garden path, you will find that one of the white
clouds has come down from the sky to take you for a ride. I want you to
climb onto this cloud. It is lovely and fluffy-perhaps its made of
cotton wool? Or is it made out of cotton candy? Look, there is a little
seat with a set of leather reins. You don't have to tell this cloud
where to go as it floats off into the wide blue sky. Your cloud knows
where it is going.
you are leaving the planet Earth behind. I want you to look below. You
will see Earth like a gigantic ball with many different patterns. You
can see that these are the forests, the rivers, and the mountains. The
clusters of buildings are the cities, and they are tightly packed in,
but where the sheep, horses, and cattle graze, there are only a few
buildings and barns. If you look very closely you can see your home
way, way below you.
off you go, up and up, floating very peacefully on your soft downy
cloud. The higher you go, the smaller Earth will appear to you, until
it becomes just a speck in the distance. Have a good look around. You
will see other small clouds that have children just like you who have
been brought from their gardens to feel the freedom of floating in the
little clouds are now stopping at a very large cloud. You can step off
now and go for a walk on this big cloud. The other children are getting
off too. You will find there are people there who like living in the
clouds. They are called the Cloud People, and they wear flowing white
robes with fluffy shoes and hats. The Cloud People love showing off
there land of clouds to children-grown ups are only sometimes invited,
and then only if they have the right kind of imagination.
is so much to do on this cloud. You certainly won't fall off, even if
you hang over the side by the tips of your toes, because they have a
different law of gravity in Cloud Land. There are slippery dips and
swings and round a bouts to ride. You can even go swimming in the cloud
pool, which is all white and foamy.
What fun you can have here, so I think I will leave you now......
