Above the Clouds

The summer sky is such a pretty blue
above us, looking like a tranquil sea..
There are not many clouds except a few.
Up there with you is where I’d love to be!

I picture us both soaring to the sky
into that oceanic blue expanse;
above the clouds is where we ought to fly,
where, like two joyful angels, we would dance!

We’d spin about as if our feet had wings
that lightly touched on an unparalleled 
softness! And in my imaginings, 
I see us there with happiness unquelled.

Removed at last from earthly cares and crowds,
we’d stay in cool blue sky above the clouds.

    A wonderful sonnet. I love all the lines from the beginning to the end. When I close my eyes after reading this poem I really feel free and calm...Bidhu.

    May your world under the sky be filled with heavenly delights. Although a year can seem quite long, may you know joy tonight.

    Just lovely. The third stanza is what did it for me... happiness unquelled. If that's not waxing eloquent I don't know what is... hope all is well in your corner of the globe!

    Andrea, you have a lovely imagination. I have actually been above and through the clouds, and it is remarkable. In response to your last comment, I was using satire in my comment about my poem. You are very cool and very sentimental-you have a lot of wonderful qualities. I am amazed by the diversity of your work.
