Above The Clouds

Ishika Gautam

A path of morning lit so bright,

Above those clouds I despised,

What a plan to begin this curious day,

Recalled me a time, still vivid in sight,


Marked that voice, of a wrinkled oldy,

A weak, brave voice still he's holdin',

Along with me my tiny short hair,

I remember myself asking him boldly,


"Does the beings I saw flew away,

Latter above the clouds one way?

Only queen I would rather be,

To place in this throne if they stay?


Instead those cushions in the high,

I'll make a couch below the sky,

I'll love and care and love again,

To make them stay, swearing to never lie."


A frank chuckles he possessed,

Breaking my daydreams to suppress,

I frowned my hands crossed on chest,

Only if he never left me curious.

    stunning words, dear poet. they fill me with a sort of reflective reverence; indeed, there are things out of our reach that we will never know. 'only if he never left me curious' - what a powerful, yet wistful line
