To A Cloudy Day - Poem by April Lane

Formless realm of my spirit eternal
Why dost keep forever in thy palm
Such a wealth of golden rays diurnal
Robbing me of nature's richest balm?
Pale and weak, a listless wretch I must wait
Beholding not of Phoebus a wink
Confined to earth my daydreams suffocate
Closer to oblivion I sink
Alas for wings to rise above the rain
Wander heaven's hallways with the dove
Up past all reach of dreariness and pain
To bask in the pure light from above
But time's lofty haven where the heart is healed
Lies forever out of sight by mists concealed

Topic(s) of this poem: cloudy, flying, light

    Beautiful train of thought, well articulated and nicely penned in Shakespearean sonnet rhyme scheme with spiritual insight. An elusive hope of one at very low ebb of life, seeking for divine intervention is well depicted in the poem. A lovely piece indeed. Thanks for sharing April. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    but heal it can
    and be like new
    the other alternative
    would be heart stew

    very nice write April Lane
