The Dance of the Clouds

The rays of the Sun

Are bright and warm

The air feels good

As it brushes my face

I hear nothing

No

I hear something

A whispering

Maybe


I look up to the sky

And stare in awe

At the sight before me

The clouds

Whisper to me

Watch us

Today we dance

We are swirling

Teasing

Drifting


I look and stare

Graceful in their beauty

But motionless

Surely

I look away

And back again


The images change

Like dragons breath

Stretching

Sauntering across the miles


In a blink of an eye

They swirl

They dance

Together

Apart

A dance of delight


I feel the fun

Their merriment

I feel the lightness

Of their touch

As they come together


I watch spellbound

As the clouds perform

I feel their joy

Bliss

Peace

My eyes close

Holding on to the moment

I begin to drift away

Floating

Dancing

My eyes open

All I see is

Blue

The dance is over

Hi Sunnie, These wonderful wispy (Cirrus) clouds are my favourite to watch.

There is actually a 'Cloud Appreciation Society' they unite cloud lovers around the world, their website is excellent, perhaps we should think about joining?

Your PS is so funny!

I love clouds, their many shapes and patterns, their softness, puffy looking cotton batten smiles. Laying on my back smelling the green grass and biting on a blade of green while at the same time looking up to the blue sky to see the clouds going drifting by. Beautiful poem, loved your style, Bravo. Rated UP for awesome.
