LIGHT FILTERING THROUGH THE CLOUDS


through the clouds it drifts
a sea of milk

a ray of hope
a heavenly rope

a mist of joy
a shadow of sky

a path of noor
a flight of hoor

stairs of light
to inconceivable height

a glow in the heart
a joy, for a start

a sight to feel
a light that heal

material of dreams
a magical seam

an angels ride
sun's own pride

a sight that fills
what a magical feeling!

this poem is about the way light passes thru the clouds sometimes.the rays of light filtering thru is quite mesmerizing

PS. noor is 'heavenly light'
hoor is 'fairies'
