A little piece I wrote while sitting outside this afternoon on my patio.....


                           Cloud watching.......





       Sitting here quietly on my back patio,
  looking up watching the clouds moving by.
     Thinking how many times I have done
                            this before,
  yet each time as if they are new clouds in
                              the sky.

  Cloud watching as a small child, guessing
                          the shapes,
could not have been more than three or four.
Wondered where they came from, where they
                           are going,
  growing older observing so so much more.

 With each passing year more acutely I gazed,
        what else is there, just has to be so
                         much more.
    Slowly realizing the tantalizing beauty
                            of it all,
   it was really a welcome sign from God's
                         front door.

      Hands reaching out to gently caress,
offering hope, inner peace, unconditional love.
 The flame burns bright deep within the soul,
each time we catch a glimpse of his beautiful
                        white dove.

   While living in heaven continues through
our time on earth equals but a grain of sand.
     A stepping stone, a place to rest our
                      weary bones,
 never forgetting what his son did walking
                     on this land.

    One sacred man, one moment in time,
                    changed history,
willingly sacrificing himself for all mankind.
 There has been no other to walk in his path,
which is why we praise him with heart, soul
                         and mind.

      The next time you look at the clouds
                          in the sky,
remember his vision and on the cross he died.
Live your life in praise of his human worth
                  and heavenly glory,
  anything less will be the day Jesus cried.

A heart moving verse, marvelously arranged. We could all learn a little bit if we took the time and examined nature.

This is very moving. Karen Palumbo be thankful, you are indeed gifted. Your poem has washed away the accumulation a little more of the gray sorrow from my soul. My father's passing barely a month ago, has left a void. Your words lift my spirits. Thanks.

And if we think for a moment, perhaps those clouds are looking back at us, because His eyes are everywhere.
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader)
Looking upward is always a positive thing. I found myself, at one point in my life, able to go to a place that I came to regard as almost sacred. There I would lie flat on my back and stare straight up into the heavens. Clouds formed and reformed themselves into a hodgepodge of patterns and shapes. When there were no clouds, when the sky was filled with solid blue was the time I felt my attatchment with the cosmos more than at any other time. There I could stared into its vastness and realize that I was a speck in the universe, not an insignificant speck, but rather a speck which burned with the meaning oof creation, et al . . . Sorry, your beautiful poem got me off on a trip of yesteryear . . .

When we look at the heavens and think of Him who died for our sins, we are closer to reaching our goal and praising Christ before we die.

This is a StormSpinner kind of write: I see the SkyWatcher in you! :) Love to take pictures of the clouds, to try and guess what shapes are in them. Got some amazing shots of thunderheads this afternoon (alas, no rain). LOL God paints beautiful skies, doesn't He? Beautifully penned, well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
