For POETS UNITED ~ Midweek Motif ~ Stormy Weather ~ Clouds Gather ~

Clouds gather in the sky
some are dark some light up high
here they come rumbling
wonder why they are grumbling?
raising a storm , hue and cry!
                                                    Clouds gather in the sky;

are they showing us a fire?
frowning on a sinful desire?
warning of The Heaven’s Ire?
or  to cool the bonfire?
                                                    Clouds gather in the sky

I wonder if their thunder
is a song of  celestial choir?
praising Divine Moist Sapphire,
Dust we see and dust we are
yet the particles conspire
                                                               Clouds gather in the sky

to relieve us from our misery
cooling comfort we do require,
I know they come to admire
and blessing us , will soon retire
away to their ocean home entire,
                                                            Clouds gather in the sky!

they leave a message , a purifier !
be at peace and mercy
be not a crier or a liar
be like us without any fuss
a bold graceful high flyer-
                                                            Clouds gather in the sky !
in rain we sing n shout n play
but break the law, then face the bolt
If stormy weather be  Gods' Wrath ?
stormy weather was foretold-then
Pray for mercy, and a cleansing bath

                                                     OH Clouds Gather in the sky !
                                                     And I don't wonder why...


  1. A beautiful poem! Could be a song. I love the subtle shift into direct address and personification:
    "be like us without any fuss
    a bold graceful high flyer"
    The rest of the poem doesn't question, it informs, still beautifully, and in an awe full dichotomy.

    1. Thank you Susan You like these lines -your words encourage me

  2. This really could be a song.
    The message "they" leave is my favorite part
