Nube Elephantasia

A Chapter by Sir Drift & Mr. Pulse (Y.A.D.)

A children's story about elephants in clouds. Join little Diana who believes in the Cloud Elephants and will not stop until she finds them. This is a rhyming story.


Cloud Elephants


Once upon a time, there was an elephant small and curious.

The stories of her grandfather seemed delirious.

But little Diana believed in the Cloud Elephants above,

the ones no one has ever seen of.  

She drifts on a journey to prove them all wrong, leaving the hot jungle with adventure as her song.

“To the top!” she shouts as she believed there laid the clouds,

higher and higher searching for white grounds.

Months flew by before finding her destination,

then came the day where she found the white nation.

Polar Bears, Penguins, ice on the ground,

she asked all the animals if they heard of similar sound.

A white owl approached with the cry of her excitement,

“wait for the aurora to find enlightenment.”

Awaiting the surprise snow began to sprout,

“The clouds are falling!” she began to shout.

The sun went down and waved goodbye to the rising moon,

and an aurora coated sky began to bloom.

Diana was amazed at the mysterious night

but had no idea what the snow owl had in mind.

Out on the calm ocean, she reached to touch the moon,

with the mysterious colors that easily swoon.

In the distance she heard a sound familiar to her ears,

it was the story she believed in for so many years.

White Elephants appeared as puffy as the clouds,

the rushing excitement pounded loud.

The owl made an elephant out of pure white snow,

yet little Diana did not know.

She jumped and whistled from her joyful spout,

to have seen the cloud elephants she was talking about.

There under such magical night the elephant came alive,

the other animals could not believe their eyes.

The two elephants danced under the aurora sheeted sky,

but the elephant soon enough had to say goodbye.

Little Diana began to cry,

the cloud elephant whispered: “don’t worry, I will fall again from the sky.”

“Wait outside as the aurora covers the moon,

and I will come rushing through the monsoon.”

Though sad she hoped to meet again under the glow,

and there a rushing wind blew away the snow.

One snowflake remained on the crystal floor,

it was the key towards the cloud’s door.

The astonished elephant road back from where she began,

where her family waited across the land.

“Where have you gone?” her father asked,

“I have found the Elephants while the days have passed!”

She held out the snowflake and they all stared confused,

“ This is his heart which the sky and ground have fused.”

Then the night befell and there everyone could see how the clouds slowly fell to reveal the secret no one believed. 

Little Diana had now been living her dream.

Oh this captured my heart. I haven't read much of children's tales but this one is beautifully crafted, Sire...
I wonder, do we all live up to live our dreams?

I agree on that point...
Another beautifully crafted tale, lovely!

When we read the word 'monsoon' Curtis cracked up, another word he's rather amused by. Imaginations soaring!

Children are my inspiration. 😉 glad you enjoyed
I liked your attempt. I thought the story sends a wonderful message that children must one day figure out for themselves what is true and what they would believe because they might just be like little Diana "living [their] dream."

Thanks for posting!
