Above The Clouds - Poem by Laurence Overmire

Have you ever flown
in a plane
and climbed above
the clouds?

No matter
how dark and gray
the world below,
above the clouds
the sun is always

shining.

    Having a fear of flying (even though I have been 3 times on a jet) I have endured days on a Greyhound to avoid heights like that, but this poem seems so optimistic, it almost makes me want to hop a plane. So much spoken in few words. Good poem. Sincerely, Connie Webb PS I suppose we can float in other 'planes' above darkness, too. This poem looks like a good one to meditate on. Take care.

    clear
    precise
    and utterly true
    a needed jolt of hope
    a wonderful poem (Report) Reply
