The Man-Cloud
                                by Ralph Fletcher

In a buzzing morning meadow
when the sun was not yet high
I thought I saw a man-cloud
walking in the sky.

My brother saw it differently.
He told me with a laugh
that what I’d seen was actually
an ice-skating giraffe.

“Can’t you see the way he’s gliding?
With those long legs see him striding?
I distinctly see a tall giraffe
walking in the sky.”

I didn’t stop to disagree
or tell him he was wrong.
I saw a man-cloud walking,
and wished to go along.

  1. Your poem brings back memories of looking up at the clouds with my sons and describing what we saw. It was always something different, and that made it even more fun. Since reading "The Blue Between", I sometimes look at the sky differently.

  2. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
