Just Jot it January: Cloud


Today  6th  January’s prompt  is  Cloud  and  was  mooted  by  Geoff Lepard  at  Tangental check him out  you  will not be  disappointed.




Cloud Walker

They called him  Cloud for  short, the  boy with a  dream

Laughing behind his back. They had  not  seen what he  had seen.

As he  grew  he  did not  worry  what  people had  to  say

Shunning  school  he  leaned  the  ancient way.


He  lived  by  the  sun, the  moon and  the star

But it  was  the  clouds  that influenced him more by  far.

His  mother  knew  he was  unlike  the  others, knew he was blessed

By nature’s  knowledge and  would live apart from  the rest.


One  day  while out  climbing  he  suddenly  knew  what  he  must do

He  stepped out on to a  cloud  and followed where  the eagle flew.

No one  ever saw him again after  that  day

His  mother  knew he  was safe  and  up in the  clouds, dragons  to  slay.


They called him  Cloud for  short, the  boy with a  dream

Laughing behind his back. They had  not  seen what he  had seen.

As he  grew  he  did not  worry  what  people had  to  say

Shunning  school  he  leaned  the  ancient way.

    Dear lady…. This is excellent! Your poetry has matured, as it does for us all over time; it is a great pleasure to see such beauty, powerful emotion, and grace of expression; a wonderful poem….

    Nicely done, milady….
