Poem on the subject of clouds...


 

Bengal tiger, Chinese dragon,
Asian elephant, African lion,
Sea of fire, lake of salt –
The clouds can take on any form!

Now white pillows on a blue sheet,
Now speeding space ships, wherever from,
And now a grey ceiling blocking the sun’s heat –
I love to watch the clouds transform!

Back when I was a young lad,
Rather than play football or skip ropes,
I used to lie on the grass, facing skywards,
Just to see the clouds perform!

I’ve seen Washington crossing the Delaware
And Jesus Christ giving a sermon.
’Saw Napoleon at Waterloo but before I could yell, “Beware!”,
The clouds changed again, as is their norm! 

 

This poem appears in Alexander's poetry anthology, 'The Moon is Made of Green Cheese':

Thanks a lot, Andre Emmanuel. I am already working on my second book of poems.
Reviewed by Andre Bendavi ben-YEHU 10/10/2012
A majestic composition on Nature wonders with a satirical background that strikes cerebration of the pilitical waves of shame on the ocean of indifference.

"The Clouds" is an exquisite composition of poetic sustainability and subject dealt.


I salute You, Poet, and wish You a successful sale of "The Moon is Made of Green Cheese". May this book of Yours get listed with the most sold ones.


In respect and appreciation,


Andre Emmanuel Bendavi ben-YEHU

Our brains have the amazing capability of taking the moving wisps of cloud white and creating images as real as the actual event. And then we can put them down on paper as a poem.
