clouds by anelephantcant

Click here to hear the poet read his words:


clouds

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. https://anelephantcant.me/

  1. I really liked this one. The progression from clear to cloudy to rain to clear was wonderfully done.
