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

When I listen Angus & Julia Stone, I always feel inspired to write or draw…now I’m drinking from clouds…look what happens when you drink from clouds…you have giant daydreams like this… lol


Now you can have a listen to my first ever audio recording of my poem! Click the link below to listen:

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!

    How wonderful is your imagination, it makes the surreal seem plausible.

  • aw, thanx Marion…Angus & Julie Stone’s music takes me strange and surreal places for some reason….it’s a very odd effect, but i kinda like it, beats taking costly substances lol xxx
