Story Of A Cloud

And then a gloomy cloud
halted and dissolved
into an ocean of tears.

Relieved after throwing
its fears, it flew with
the wings of merry birds
holding avenues of bliss
in their sights.

Roaming the skies
it was oblivious to
the sighs of unresting
waters below.

Enhaling air, its
chest turned heavy
with melancholy,
and it could think about
none, but pouring it again.

The cloud is a merchant,
trading pain with pain.

    The comment above looks different. I too received many such comments and I used to delete them since they would be in the spam mail. Today I clicked on one and it was my own blog with a link to my page on some website😀

    It rained in Isloo this morning. That’s good but guess what it didn’t rain a bit here. So the weather is as usual hot and humid.

    Also read on Nadeen’s page you have a birthday today.

    Happy birthday to you Aadil!

  3. the cloud is a merchant, yar plz ask this merchant to come in dubai i’m missing twin cities you know I love rain. aah ah……
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, best of luck for ur bright future

  4. Hope you had a good day – I like the poem about the cloud – its a good way of looking at it –

    At first it breathes in the air and then becoming heavy with its melancholy, it unburdens its pain on the world – Its a good imagery!

    Thanx Naden aapi! I’m glad you like the poem.

    trading pain with pain.

    these lines appealed the most. however, the emotions flowing out of the poem are intensely sad.
    though i liked the imagery throughout
