Above the Clouds

Love lifted me into the clouds so high I could not see the world beneath my feet. We sailed away into a sunset sky. I felt so sure my life was then complete! We soared through galaxies, collecting dust from shining stars that made our faces glow. Life felt so sweet; the earth beneath us must have been illusion. . . . but what did I know? Reality, I learned, was not above those fluffs of clouds, for passion dies so soon, you’re pulled down to the ground. And what of love? It’s just a glimmer up there on the moon. Yet mortals can’t stop wishing for that flight above the clouds into the star-filled night. For the Both Sides Now Poetry Contest of Alfred Vassallo

    Reads like a winner..Love is definitely a two-sided coin.."Love lifted me into the clouds so high I could not see the world beneath my feet. We sailed away into a sunset sky. I felt so sure my life was then complete" These are my favorite lines..Thanks for stopping by..I go out on the porch and write and of course the scene is similar each day but always different for there are no two exact morning as there are no two exact people..Sara

    Andrea, your writes are above the clouds. While we commune with mortals you fellowship with the angels

    I really like how you capture that "rosey-red-everything-is-fantastic-and-amazing" feeling on how love feels and is in the beginning.............then reality sets in and one see reality for what it is, while still remembering and longing for for that magic rush to come again. Great write!

    Andrea, I don't know if you broke a rule...LOL..I was trying to get your attention...LOL, How else would I get you to stop by my latest...LOL.... Besides, I'm feeling like myself today, and I felt like snooping your page. I think, I'm going on over to Alfred's contest. I think what you have here is great, and will score in his contest. Alfred's very picky.. YEAH! See you in a bit..LINDA
