The clouds gather strength in darkness. It is this coming together that is the true power, they say. Invest only in what you can lose. The clouds know they will regroup, reform, and destroy again. Do not hoard, they say, as they shake the peaks in afternoon thunder. Putting your trust in something that can be stolen is simply inviting your own robbery, your own rape.

They sweep up the destruction, but they cannot hold it all. Clouds are not meant for hoarders.
