Beyond Cloud Nine #poetry

tales told different

Photo prompt: what do you see?

What happens when we surpass our goals

and transcend the euphoria of touching the sky

when we take that leap of faith

onto the fabled cloud ten

obscured and outshined by the lesser nine

but always there, sacred or profane

a step from greatness to legend

no more sky, no more blue

.

But to reach so far is to be alone

when stars and moon are all you see

gentle lights, minute on a backdrop of envy

You dare not look below, for the plummet down cannot be survived,

To fall is to end.

so you look above, held by charges of lightning from your ascent

And like the tree you are, you grow some more

to find a foothold on the moon in reach

Alas, even that moon is not safe from envy

a crescent of light is all you…
