From Annette Nasser



I lay down on the lush, green grass
looking up at the celestial sky
watching clouds perform
as they go floating by.

The sky’s theater sets the stage
as clouds pass through
on their merry way
entertaining my eyes
with wispy surprise
as I journey from earth
on mystical tours of billowy dreams
and marshmallow delight.

A castle that trails a rabbit’s tail
attached to the wings of a butterfly,
a whale and a cat,
a baseball and bat take wing
as they shuttle on by.

A jungle safari with lions and bears
emerge from a cumulus cloud
migrating in motion
to imaginative notions
embraced in pillow-y shrouds

Rhapsodies in white
and the fairest of blue,
pre-nuptial visions of tufted preludes
and painting a picture
within the mind’s eye,
I watch clouds perform
as they softly float by.
