Being loved
so deeply, she danced
on sun’s rays
while she soared
through beautiful blue skies on
her way to cloud nine.

Tears From Cloud Nine

 

TEARS FROM CLOUD NINE

On
my
way up
to cloud nine,
I hit turbulence.
The skies turned grey and the sun hid.
Darkness enveloped me, storms battered me, and rain fell.
Each droplet mixing with my tears
as they descended
to the ground,
helping
me
grow.
