The Lachrymose Nephologist

A cloud floats wispy high and white

Pure in a clean blue sky

A sky too blue to shed a tear

A sky that can never cry

The cloud now sees another there

Pure in a clean blue sky

They smile and drift and join each other

In a sky that still can’t cry

And now the cloud becomes a shape

Less pure in a clean blue sky

More clouds start merging soft together

In a sky that is yet to cry

The clouds are thick and full and low

Dark in a grey blue sky

The light almost hidden behind the veil

Of a sky preparing to cry

Now clouds are all that can be seen

No blue in a grey black sky

No sunlight in a broken world

As the sky begins to cry

A cloud floats wispy high and white

Pure in a clean blue sky

The storm passes over clearing the air

In time the tears will dry

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless.

    This poem about clouds is very nice I agree

    Sad clouds happy clouds whatever you see

    But could you tell me if you foresee

    If any clouds will come crying on me?

    We are parched here. 😦 😦

    I adore this. Love the metaphoric trip with the literal. Love that. 🙂
