Mysterious, Magical Clouds

Updated on January 16, 2019

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

It truly is a fantasy,

that comes to my mind,

each time I look at the sky

and see those fluffs of white.

I often wonder

what it is I’m looking at.

Oh, I know it’s all so scientific,

but I’d rather think it’s mystifying.

Perhaps clouds,

are like cotton candy,

just as sweet and full of sugar -

maybe really good to eat.

Perhaps clouds,

are magical

and if we caught ourselves one -

we could make wishes that’ll come true.

Perhaps clouds,

are meant for dreaming

and if we had ladders long enough,

we could climb on one.

Perhaps this and so much more,

clouds to me are wondrous things,

that are made for stuff like dreams

and other schemes.

How would it be,

if we could take a cloud

and make of it -

whatever our imagination told us.

Perhaps if you’re musical,

you might take a cloud

and from it you’d make -

many musical instruments.

Perhaps if you’re an artist,

you might just choose,

to take a cloud

and make different sculptures.

For writers that would be pure delight,

to grab a hold of a cloud

and ever so carefully -

making the biggest typewriter in the sky.

I for one,

would want to make,

a sailing ship

and with my cloud sail along with the wind.

With friends scattered here and there,

oh, what fun it would be,

to form a coach from each cloud -

put together it’d be a train stretching on and on.

Then friends could climb aboard,

when my train cloud would appear

and we could go chugging -

all around this world of ours.

      Thank you, Ann. One of my summertime relaxing occupations watching clouds rolling by with a digital camera by my side.

      Love your idea of the train. Clouds have always inspired haven't they? I like making shapes from them and my grandchildren think I'm a bit bonkers but love looking to see 'dogs' or 'dragons' or 'saucepans'!

      Great poem!

      I love this, Rasma! Don't forget to pick me up when your cloud train comes my way. I'll gladly join you for a trip around the world riding the thermals in our big, beautiful sky!

      Ah, the clouds, who has not given them so much thought? You have expressed perhaps many of our own thoughts.

      Great poetry.

      Light, airy and fun piece, just like clouds. Just to lie back on a summer day and let our imaginations ride along the clouds, was great when we were kids and that is still a good way to spend time today.
