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. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are working with a team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children 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 (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. 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. We can always imagine catching the clouds even though we know it’s out of reach.In a way we can catch it when it falls as rain, just a thought,Leslie.


  2. Love this, so powerful, I would love some feedback from you on what I’ve written it would mean alot if you read my blog 🙂 ✨ this is amazing keep it up 🙂


  3. I do like the idea of chasing clouds away in search for warming rays. Seems we have done a lot of that this summer, as we have had so many overcast days.


  4. 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…….


  5. 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.


  6. 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.


  7. 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.


  8. 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. 🙂
