Strings of Clouds

by Maria Isabel Cecilia Pascual
(Manila, Philippines)




How I wish I could fly amongst the flock of royal birds in the skies,

~To feel the great wind and see the Sun god in full view.

~ ~

Reach heaven and touch the white clouds above,


Collect the fluffiest ones if I may...
~ ~

String them one by one like a necklace,

~

To adorn my bereft bossom torn by woeful thoughts;

~ ~ ~

To douse and cool down the blazing fire of my soul...



Note: Wistful thinking of a woman going through bouts of hot flashes! :)

Turning into serious poetry...Grand!
by: Tanuja Chatterjee

You've painted a beautiful picture and I thought they were the channels that take away all my gloom and turn the sky blue!

Thank you dearest Ja, as you said before "we are so much alike!" Yes, what is life without poetry... I could not imagine my existence without it!
