Chasing the Clouds #photography #poetry

just out of reach

out of breath for trying

you give me quite a race

to the end of the day

*

just out of reach

behind the sun is shining

the outline finger traced

you beckon me to play

*

just out of reach

my will is bent on flying

to meet you in a place

warmed always by your rays

*

Yesterday, I chased the clouds. The beautifully outlined clouds held back the sun’s full light.

There are some things you can never capture on camera. A glimpse of heaven I believe is one of them.

What do you chase in your excursions of life?

I am sharing this with Poetry Pantry where this always good poetry to catch.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. How I adore clouds. I chase them all the time, sometimes in a car full of kids….today I sat with a little one by the side of a lake and we remarked how the clouds were perfect storybook clouds……..I think I could live simply for clouds alone, crossing that blue sky…….

  2. Chase? I like the memories this poem arouses, though i don’t think I chase anything anymore. Maybe a firefly or two, a frog in a stream, a kind of light.

  3. The photo is breath-taking and the words well-matched. I like the way you have made use of repetition in each part of the whole.

  4. A beautiful poem here. I don’t chase the clouds, but often, from my back yard I watch and watch. What I pursue is not heaven but a deeper knowing of what is, who I am, love. I wind up with lots of questions. I really enjoyed reading this.

  5. Loved the catching of your clouds. It is so true you can’t always capture the real image even if you have a camera. But the picture will help you to remember the moment.
    Wonderful interpretation of clouds and our human desires…catching, chasing them. 🙂
