Dancing on the clouds
I’ve always yearned to try
Leave my world behind
Seek sanctuary in the sky

To be one with the birds,
Forever free to roam
To move like the wind,
Have but the heavens for my home

To embrace the moon,
Oh, what I wouldn’t give
Amid the flaming stars,
That is where I long to live

How can you catch a cloud?
In spite of your beseech,
The dreams you dream the most
Are the ones farthest from your reach
I was in the mood for some serious poetry, and this is what my imagination cooked up. Not bad at all, if I do say so myself. :nod: I'd say this is my best poetic piece since "An Angel With No Wings."

Feel free to interpret this your way, to determine the mood for yourself, because that's pretty much what poetry is all about, isn't it? You say it means one thing, someone else says it means another, and neither of you can go wrong.

This is a really nice poem. I hope you don't mind that I used the title for a poem I wrote. [link]

Have you thought about submitting some poetry to anthologies? I know just the place, if you're interested.

My boyfriend founded an organization called The Bard's Initiative, a group dedicated to poetry. Every year, he (with the help of myself and a few others) put out an anthology called "Bard's Annual," featuring poets from all over the country (and even a few different countries).
Let me know if you're interested in submitting poems and I'll note you the info.

I think I'd like that. I don't see how it would hurt, anyway.

This reminds me of that song from "The Snowman". Has that same feel to it.

That movie's so sad.

Out of context, the song is less so. Which is why I prefer cover versions.

I haven't seen the movie in years, and yet some part of the song's never left me entirely.

And I found out the sequel today. It's good, too, if somewhat similar to the first.

I ought to make a whole book of poems. Who says I have to write just novels?

Yeah! Poetry anthologies are fun to write (I remember writing one back in elementary school about 5th grade ;))

I've always liked poetry, but I think I've only just begun writing very good ones, the ones that actually mean something.

Those are usually the best kinds of poerty; the ones with meaning, I mean :3

And the ones that are left for you to decide, the ones that have multiple meanings.
