A Poem by R. L. Igmen

I wrote this poem while gazing up in the sky from a window...

Silently looking at the sky above ,
the pure white clouds are the same as the Dove;
There's no sign of any birds in the air,
gladly the tranquil weather seems so fair.

Searching for a fancy angel-shaped cloud;
then those white things above slowly flood.
Thinking that there is such thing as Heaven--
if there is, my Soul will fly lik'a raven.

This is very nice. Just today I was laying on the football field (lost my P.E. clothes) and looking up at the sunny sky as the clouds began to cover it. I was wearing shades and without the glare I could see the true intricateness of them. I couldn't get over the way they billowed and wisped in such delicate ways but on a massive scale.

This piece instantly reminded me of it. I love when i writing does that!

really picturesque piece, definitely something we all love deep in our hearts, you've done really great here. it's a good thing you picked the deep blue sky to write about. why? it makes us think about these things that we SO take for granted. in many other countries, pollution is so bad one sees nothing much but smog and haze, and sometimes the very sun is blocked out by the pollution. wonderful work man

It is a good day when we have time to enjoy the sky. Relax and allow the mind to wander. A very good poem. You described a beautiful day. Thank you.

Reminds me of a day I recent spent in Central Park. The clouds were so close, I felt like I cloud be close enough to touch a bird or become one all together. I enjoyed this poem for this reason. Thank you.
