A Lonely Cloud.....[Nature Observation; Humor]

I saw a lonely cloud one day.
It looked small beyond the Bay.
I tried to find a second and failed,
even though I looked each way.

Think of it! A single cloud.
It's loneliness spoke to me aloud.
I wonder how it felt up there.
Was it very proud?

A rarity I think it was;
like an active bee with no buzz;
like a single potato chip;
like a peach skin with no fuzz.

Like one firefighter at a fire;
a solitary pigeon on a wire;
a Facebook member with no 'friend';
a single member in a choir.

It's like an Easter basket with one egg;
a basketball star with one leg;
me with just one word to say;
a fraternity party with just one keg.

I guess you've come to realize by now
that when I saw that cloud I thought 'Wow! '.
If I'd been Adam, with Eve at my side,
to that small distant cloud I might bow.

    It often happens.. sometimes we too feel lonely like this cloud despite there being a crowd around us Bri.
    Your rendering skill [with this simple attitude to our nature] is astoundingly fascinating dear sir.

    A very unique poem on a unique phenomenon! A sky with just a speck of cloud... and such umpteen comparisons! Choosing the out of the ordinary themes and presenting them in a striking manner is something that makes your poems nonpareil! ! Greatly enjoyed! !

    Another very inspirational poem, so many subjects around us...but we don't all see the same things..nice.
