A Silver Cloud - Poem by Kevin East

Great love
Orbited the earth
Just before our birth.
As our souls
Held hands to jump
Into the ether.
Or beneath a
Silver cloud.
The Heavens
Laughing so loud
With joy.
Sounded like a storm.
Two hearts pounded
In the warm
Of an infant sun.
Before they broke away
And spun.
Lost in the milky way.
Yet, to meet again one day.

A million years later
God's astral waiter
Served us a sunset sublime.
Bells rang in cathedrals of rhyme.
Our hands touching
Across distance and time.
We both left our scars
On venus or mars
Or in books in love's library of pain.
We'd take them out again.
To read of lost promises
Left in the rain.

But now we will chase
A feeling so strong.
To a wild summer place
Where bluebirds sing our song.
To meet forever
In a kiss.
We have never felt like this,
Since time began.
A woman and a man,
Who waited for eternal embrace.
Once wrapped in emotional shroud
To merge
At last
Or beneath
A silver cloud.

Kevin East.
