Drifting Leisurely Inside The Cloud

Ah, drifting leisurely inside the cloud,
Watching hot sun's rays glance across the nose
of the winged drone, stealthily slipping proud,
I drifted so peacefully through the flows.

Updrafts from silent streams beneath arose
lifting craft's nose, unexpectedly plowed
through looming cumulus's potential foes,
Ah, drifting leisurely inside the cloud.

My teeth clinching, I bared tense lips so proud;
Sensed gusts of air across the broadened floes,
Kissed cerulean sky above allowed
Watching hot sun's rays glance across the nose.

Fecklessly, thoughts wondered how high she goes
before narrow cockpit collapsed to shroud,
and leaps of joy turned into flailing woes
of the winged drone, stealthily slipping proud.

For a moment, my breathing burst aloud,
A sudden chill, fear inside my chest froze
leaps of joy turned to sad, flailing allowed,
Watching hot sun's rays glance across the nose

I shall land on the grassy field unbowed
Receive the welcomed accolades from those
who soloed the winds, powerless, uncowed
by dangers the upper sky chose to pose,
drifting leisurely inside the cloud.
