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

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

Rating: 4.8


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 wonderful write of a special sight, a solitary cloud floating all alone in an ocean of blue sky. Take care partner.

You have already demonstrated a fine young poetic talent from what I've read so far. I happened to notice (in 'Notifications' section of PH) that you'd visited my 'cloud'. thanks.
