Clouds - Poem by Fahim Sayed

Flying in the air
Through childhood fantasies,
Making friends with clouds
I recall those memories.

These snowy magical things,
Floating above us all
Who made them?
And how do they crawl.

I see them bringing the thunder,
I see them bring the rain,
They make an amazing sight,
Unbelievable frame

Now; I see them face to face
Tempted to hug them; an embrace,
I wish I could float with them,
Perhaps challenge them for a race.

Get them to play,
Songs of peace we’ll sing,
Hopping from one to another,
And on the smallest I’ll swing.

Pity, this experience is not possible;
without commercial aid.
I wish my body could fly;
as my imagination does.

    The same old story - we always want what we can't have. And yet, there's always hoping, right? I adored it, and could visualise every word! ! ! Great write! (Report)Reply

    wish the first two lines of the last stanza are not part of this wonderful poem on clouds filled with child-like innocence of an adult! (Report)Reply

    When I was young I used to look at the night sky and dream of hopping from star to star. I have not given up hope yet; for one day, by His Grace, my wish will come true. Your poem is innocent and lovely. (Report)Reply

    Clouds of beauty
    Breasts of Milk
    Greying black
    to shower us white
    cooling bulbs
    pillows of passion
    floating in the air
    full of life and ocean.
