Imagination in the Sky

In the sky
Big and white
It soars high
Can you guess?
Kids point at it
And look at it
They imagine it as shapes
And animals
They can feel the fluffy surface
As if being able to touch it
They fantasize about sleeping
In its comfy stuffing inside
Comfy stuffing that provides a safe haven
When times are tough in a kid’s life
That’s right
It’s a cloud
When you look up
Clouds are everywhere
They take you back to a time when you were a kid
Gazing at the sky
And seeing a dinosaur
Or a giraffe
They ignite the kid in all of us
And remind us of a much simpler time
When the worst thing that could happen
Is your T-Rex cloud
Breaking into pieces
And floating away
So someone else
Can see it as a dragon

I loved your description of clouds, especially since I am known to watch the sky and I know the feeling that you describe well. Great poem!
