Peregrinate

PEREGRINATE

–verb (used without object)
1. to travel or journey, especially to walk on foot.
–verb (used with object)
2. to travel or walk over; traverse.






















Sullen clouds peregrinate above
Eating the sky’s fabric as they go
Revealing old cables,
Plenty of dust,
An half eaten sandwich
A dried out marker
And a surprised puppeteer
Tangled in its own web

"a surprised puppeteer tangled in his own web" -- that is really great.

And they say "having your head up in the clouds" pejoratively! Thanks for putting my head up in the clouds today.
