A Lonely Mind - Poem by Theo Williams

I am but a lonely cloud
Sailing over these hills
Freedom is felt, I avowed
Glancing upon the dancing daffodils
A dalliance started with this glamour before me
I tasted a dulcet happiness from what I could see.

Gliding through the sky
Sun shining o'er the vale
I feel my heart's content nigh
From the sweet ocean I inhale
The cold air quenches my desire
By this seraphic view I admire.

I gambol like the stars that twinkle
Those shine their light on the Milky Way
All can feel the love they sprinkle
To revivify each night and day
The clouds smile at this ineffable life
And sing cheerful choruses to the sun's wife.

I lay on the clouds looking at the moon
This adventure has brought me much bliss
I hear the night humming a tune
Giving my ears one last kiss.
My heart then with love and happiness fills
And tomorrow I again will dance with the daffodils.

Loneliness does not define sadness nor sadness define loneliness
But if one's mind is beautiful as a daffodil
Then thy mind will dance with no distress
And solitude with glee it'll fill
This beauty is obscure and is blind
But ‘tis up to your lonesome happiness to find.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Most people say being lonely is sad and depressing. For me this is is how my mind and loneliness conflates.

    The special thing about your poems is you know how to embrace each element and linked them together in one thread, sown with beautiful languages, creates some embroidery images....that's make your poem appear beautiful as it can..keep it up_Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply
