clouds come floating

To Be A Cloud

I’d like to be a cloud
Formless – unexpected

I’d like to drink the clouds
Sudden and clear

I’d like to feel like clouds
Pure weightless and needed
Come and go and disappear

I’d like to breathe like clouds
Way up there above
Beneath and in-between

I’d like to be
Just be

  1. wow, just wow, feel like I need to say something but can’t think of anything
    the top grabbed my eye, and first blurt wanted to say that’s the fave, but then the middle one is like a magnet aimed between the eyes – mesmerizing qualities – then about to give the bottom less than it deserves but it kind of breaks the spell the middle casts and the mind feels like it is trying a new freedom. And the words. Cloud lover here too. Glad you shared this. You fed a man tonight.

  2. Such enchanting images, Susan. Those reflected clouds give the water a surreal look and that first one emanates such peaceful harmony.

  3. Oh Susan, these are just luscious. Wouldn’t mind any one of them as a wall-hanger. I could get lost in them.

  4. Beautiful mixtures of water and sky. I love how the first one is so clear that the lily pads become a path to the clouds.

  5. These pictures leave me breathless…such gorgeous colors, shapes, and reflections!

  6. First, I loved the poem. Second the photos are simply beautiful. The clouds and reflections. Blue shades and a ripple. This is lovely work Susan

  7. Susan, these are wonderful and the poem? I too want to be like a cloud, to float freely and to see forever!

  8. Oh Susan, these images are utterly spectacular in the true sense of the word. Spectacular.
