When The Clouds Chose To Drift...

Rating: 3.0
the sky was overcast
and any moment
it may unleash
needles of rain drops
we were on a recliner
in that circular verandah
wiping the sweat off the brow
for some reason
the clouds decided to
drift with the wind
and the sky turned
plain and forlorn
i casually looked into your eyes
and saw the reflection of the
thick dark clouds floating on
the skies of the whites of your eyes
ready to burst...

no, i didn't ask you the reason
but held your hand firm
and assumed the form of a piece of earth
all ready to absorb the gush of rain...

Your title paints a beautiful poem picture. Wonderful use of metaphor. The warmth of your hand says, 'I am here' in any language.10/10. Love, Sandra

You had such insight in this person using the clouds drifting as a metaphor for depth of feeling. It created pictures in my mind, and this Indira, is what a poet like you writes to give visions to your reader.....10 Karin
