About This Poem

My Clouds

clouds with human like images 
gather in the heavens 
if I go where the sky kisses the earth 
if I close my eyes tight 
will you take me up into your arms 
so we can play with the silver moon
float through the soft mist 
stretch in the golden dawn 
my heart burns in cold fear 
where you touched it 
some sadness is a part of everyone’s life 
as sunshine is a part of everyone’s life 
each moment is a new season 
priceless moments to cherish 
as black clouds disappear 
new pictures come through 
giving me hope and happiness 
allowing sunshine to smile upon me 
through the many grim walls 
radiating traces of opal greens 
and hot blues 
I lean into myself to see my true colors 
gray clouds do have a silver lining

    As powerful as this piece is, the final 2 lines are the epitome of what humanity needs. Fantastic job! I needed a piece like this to read...
