Clouds

WISDOM (2)Clouds so low
sometimes it’s hard to breathe
light is fading
or
is the sky falling too.

Eyes watching me
as I watch them swim

A spider
out of place
shifting grains
did I break it’s web
or,
did it catch me
within its spin of
wonder thread.

Weeds choke this land I love
as the sea spews forth her
waste upon the shore

Mountains
I have climbed
now dry, rot and, stinking

But…

nature does what
nature is
and
not even wishful thinking
can stop those waves from
reaching out to clutch
my heart with salt
embracing kiss.

The sun is up there
…somewhere.
I saw her try to flash a smile
for a little while, ’til she too
gave up the ghost and
was gone as an army
of snow clouds
gathered at a pace

Was it the thrill of it all
for them
or
did she leave willing, and now
she’s smiling upon someone
else’s face.

Clouds above my eyes

and…

if the sky should fall
could I still breathe.

  1. I always flash you a smile, Bren … sometimes a smile filled with tears … but nonetheless a smile …. Love you, cat.

  2. The melancholy scene brings forth so many images in my head… so many more questions of life and who really is in control of it all.

  3. Weeds choke this land I love
    as the sea spews forth her
    waste upon the shore

    I find that so profound and relevant. Great poem, Bren.

  4. To be choked off would surely make on scoff, hard to breathe as all surround and come in on you, not a fun feeling at any zoo.

  5. Wow, the claustrophobia I feel in this poem, all is too low and close and otherwise gone! And you know you got me with the spider! Sometimes it feels as though I need only turn around to knock something off the shelf of its existence. If this voice is Chicken Little and the Sky is falling–I will have to grab a cloud to use as a sunscreen and then follow the sun to breathe!

  6. “or did it catch me within its spin of wonder thread”….so beautiful. I love the conjecture about the waves and the sun……..great write, kiddo.

  7. Well, the sun is not smiling in my part of the world either! I do hope she is smiling at someone else and that whoever that may be will appreciate it! I guess we will have to find our smiles from ‘non-heavenly bodies.’

  8. Weeds choke this land I love
    as the sea spews forth her
    waste upon the shore…is a really cool concrete image bren…the sun trying to poke through, i like that and also how it gives mood to the scene as well…Was it the thrill of it all
    for them
    or
    did she leave willing, and now
    she’s smiling upon someone
    else’s face….interesting question in there, which also sets the mood as well..i like…smiles.
