A Lonely Cloud.....[nature Observation; Humor] Poem by Bri Edwards

A Lonely Cloud.....[nature Observation; Humor]

Rating: 4.9


I saw a lonely cloud one day.
It looked small beyond the Bay.
I tried to find a second and failed,
even though I looked each way.

Think of it! A single cloud.
Its loneliness spoke to me aloud.
I wonder how it felt up there.
Was it very proud?

A rarity I think it was;
like an active bee with no buzz;
like a single potato chip;
like a peach skin with no fuzz.

Like one firefighter at a fire;
a solitary pigeon on a wire;
a Facebook member with no 'friend';
a single member in a choir.

It's like an Easter basket with one egg;
a basketball star with one leg;
me with just one word to say;
a fraternity party with just one keg.

I guess you've come to realize by now
that when I saw that cloud I thought 'Wow! '.
If I'd been Adam, with Eve at my side,
to that small distant cloud I might bow.

(August 2012)

A very unique poem on a unique phenomenon! A sky with just a speck of cloud... and such umpteen comparisons! Choosing the out of the ordinary themes and presenting them in a striking manner is something that makes your poems nonpareil! ! Greatly enjoyed! !

Feeling lonely is painful, no matter how big one may be! Enjoying the silence is one thing, but being without a companion is a different matter.
