The Cloud

Turn your eyes a vertical and witness my domain,
of inverse twisting butterflies and looking down on rain;
of curved eternal distance, always sun upon our backs,
with endless ocean vistas peeping shy between the cracks.

Perhaps you think you've seen me pulling faces in the air,
my glowing liquid edges forming Elvis then Astaire.
My autograph is moisture - I sign without request,
but wait for sinful moments when you're outside underdressed.

In high sun on occasion my electric hair ascends,
you hear the lightning clatter as I bump into my friends.
But summer sees me timid creeping mostly through the hills,
saving strength for winter and a belly full of chills.

I've a repetoire of seasons, I'm a thespian of sky,
in a trice from strata cumulus to bombs of ice, then dry.
I race on wings of vapour or if sleepy simply jog
and condescend to join you for an afternoon of fog.

At night I wear a shawl of black and envy you your heat,
the fires of the city glow like coals beneath my feet.
I wish that you could touch me here, I cannot feel your love.
To clouds you seem as far below as stars seem far above.

    Quoting PreciousOrchid:
    Did you have to wait until we were up a steep hillside, carrying a pretend casualty on a make shift stretcher while anticapting gathering fire wood to make a brew before you did your worse Mr Cloud?
Aww Precious, don't be so precious! If I could, I'd have waited until you had a small hole in your ground sheet, having just spent three and a half hours in Toni and Guy. All clouds are evil, didn't you know?

Kind regards
The Cloud

Thanks florallei. I'm very pleased that you were moved. Sometimes I feel a bit like a cloud - detached, separate from the world. This is what inspired me while looking up one day.
