I drank from the clouds...

Listen to the audio recording by me here

I drank from the clouds
swam in blue satin
flew from the sun to
the crystalline mountains

I sailed on the air
powered only by pollen
sat in the centre
of all that’s unknown

I talked with the stars
Caressed the wild stallions
Slept in the ocean
Broke bread with the falcons

I circled the earth
Collecting wild species
Rummaging op shops
Finding more treasures

I built a dress
From webs in my pocket
Fashioning pearls from the
Tears in my locket

I saw the white dove
Touched every texture
Stared at the beauty
Of what is forever

I opened a flower
Looked into a heart
Played with the elephants
Who created some art

I went to the rain
Wherever it was and
Played practical jokes
On the bees and the wasps

I met a tree person
With fortunate leaves
Provided me shelter
For thirty three eves

I sang out of tune
It didn’t much matter
The rain drowned it out
Pitter patter patter patter

I drank from the clouds...

I drank from the clouds

As I mentioned, this is my first ever poem on audioboo and I’d love to share it with you. There are a couple of boo boos and I’m embarrassed by my pronounciation which is a bit aussie-fied…but this was a real buzz! I hope you enjoy! The background music is ‘chill’ by Longzijum (music (loop-based) by longzjun used with permission, charitable donation to be made to: Salvation Army
