Mysterious, Magical Clouds

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

This is great and I am certainly a cloud watcher and have thousands of those pictures. Do you ever get the "eye" pictures? I love those!

Sharing!

Gypsy - It is a pleasure knowing a kind soul such as yourself who does not take Mother Nature's beauty for granted. It comes through loud and clear with your beautiful poetry. This also reminded me of one of my favorite past times - my young friends and I would spend many lazy afternoons of our youth picking out images in the clouds. I still do it.

Hi Gypsy.

A beautiful poem and pictures.

Just to lay on your back in the grass on the side of a hill is what I did when on my holidays in Ireland. I used to feel that those clouds belonged to Ireland and no one else could see them.

The video was great to listen to.

Thanks for sharing.

What a wonderful imagination you have! I love the way you see life, and I especially love your fascination with clouds. One of my favorite pastimes is to lay on the grass and watch the clouds go by.

Well done my friend!

I love clouds and I'd have to have a typewriter cloud, and yet I would want to go sailing with you and rumbling along on the train cloud, too. Fascinating hub and pix and video.

Looking at the clouds up high,

imagining creatures going by

a boat, a plane, a train and such

connecting all with dreams so much

but if trying to walk upon a cloud

might find instead a funeral shroud.

Great job, Rasma. Inclusive of all!

There's nothing more relaxing than lying in the grass watching the clouds go by...it's as healing as tai chi or yoga..

the most amazing thing i've ever seen was an eagle - wings spread across the sky - strong beak jutting - it last for what seemed forever...

This was a great reminder of that, and one of the best pastimes available - for free!

As Albert Einstein said, "Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions." ~

This is one reason why I love my job as a FA. I love watching the clouds, there's just something magical when I'm up in the sky and truly, sky is the limit for our imagination.

Great soothing hub, very creative. Pure delight!
