Clouds in Heaven

Clouds in Heaven

A Poem by Lesley Wood
"

Golden light reflects off millions of water drops; Big hearts, big dreams.

"

Clouds in Heaven

rise as you gaze into the sky.

 

I wonder in the wind-

 

Will my thoughts carry across the globe to you,

Can you feel my dreams?

 

Golden light reflects off millions of water drops;

Big hearts, big dreams.

 

We see the same sun everyday.

Yours is always new, and mine always fades.

 

You are forever in tomorrow and I am yesterday.

 

But there is only here and now you say.

(only here and now)

 

The labels, preconceptions, misconceptions…

Our tanglements of time, life and distance-

 

I wander in the wind.

 

I wonder if I will ever touch your hand, your cheek.

I wonder if I will ever meet your eyes.

 

Will one day I breathe into you-

Will one day I give you life?

 

I wander in the wind to you.

 

Can you feel my heart, my dreams?

I loved the lines about the sun. They really displayed love even after one lover passed away. I also liked those lines because they showed how impermanent a permanent source of life is for our race. I also liked the lines about the water drops. That part of the poem was very colorful and bright.

This is a small thing, but my one suggestion would be to change the order of stanza 11 (I think it is) to "Will I breathe into you one day/ Will I give you life one day?" This is probably just a personal preference, but I think the repetition works a bit better when arranged at the end.
