blue sky over arran by anelephantcant

blue sky over arran by anelephantcant

 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

sky over loch lomond by anelephantcant

 

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. https://anelephantcant.me/

    What to say about this exceptional poem, all in gradations and circles, in gentle and sad rhythms, like a slow dance or an inexorable tide?
    Tu es fantastique! Si, vraiment!

    No sunlight in a broken world : des mots qui résument en partie la vie de maintenant (si j’ai bien tout compris) 🙂
