A Cloudy Morning - Poem by Kevin Maroney

The clouds,
Elegantly do they stride
In their heavenly chambers
In the sky.

Tis' unjust,
That I should be chained here
Forced to bear witness to such majesty.

If my own thoughts and wishes were met,
I would glide out of this world
On a silky nimbus
To escape this silly, flitty society.

    Thanks for all the support, everyone. Honestly, I didn't know this had been poem of the day four years in a row, and was very surprised to see the voiceover for it. I'm thinking of doing my own considering how many people like it. Thanks a lot guys :) (Report) Reply

    Very simple yet very elegant. The clouds come alive in your poem and your distress about your incarceration appears to be real. Thanks, Kevin. This is my favorite poem. (Report) Reply

    Lovely piece I can feel it, thank you for share! .. I guess the clouds are probably smiling whispering: hey man smile with me, it's ok, you get to smell the flowers, climb a tree or simply take a shower, a thing I badly want yet.. never can... (Report) Reply
