A poem …

for Friday Fictioneers

.

.

There’s another world

Above the clouds

.

A perfect place we’ve yet to see

A world unknown to you and me

.

An unspoilt world

Untouched by man

A world which knows not war or strife

Untainted by the needs of life

.

Above the clouds

There’s perfect peace

.

Way beyond our troubled land

Unspoilt by greed and human hand

.

There’s another world

Above the clouds

.

A world unchanged since time began

A world where nothing hides the sun

I’ve got 24 words to spare so here’s a joke! 

Why did the white cloud idolise the black cloud? Because …

Sorry, out of words!

    A precious thought! I noted the clouds, too, when I saw the photo — artist’s eye, I guess.
    What a frustrating joke! Maybe others will leave some brilliant answers in your comments.

      My first thought was with the statue, but as always I dismissed it chose to go with my second idea, clouds! As for the joke, we’ll see!

    A beautiful image, Keith, really beautiful. And you’ve got me scratching my head about the joke… Nice one!

    Your story poem reminded me of that song Willy Wonka sings in the movie. Love how you used your last words to make a joke. Your name isn’t Willy Wonka is it?

    I liked your poem very much, but I fear that far to many satellites now populate the space above the clouds.

    Dear Keith,

    Lovely and thoughtful poem. Love the frog. And the joke…well…it still made me laugh.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

      I’m glad you laughed at the question because the answer’s not that funny! Thanks, Rochelle.

      I’m sure you’re right Mimi. I certainly didn’t see it on my last plane flight!

    Your meen! I don’t have a clue about that joke but it gave me a good laugh nonetheless.
    The poem is beautiful and peaceful. I always wanted a spin in orbit, just once around, but now I’m too old and unfit…(and don’t have the millions anyway).

    Hi Keith – I think I’ll stay below them for now … my time will come to rise and shine – but not for a couple of decades at least – if I’m lucky!! Cheers and have an enjoyable gusty weekend … by the way is there an orange domed building on Bexhill beach – that I can see from E/b front? And of course if so – what is it?! Please find an answer to your joke … my black cloud yesterday was a monster dragon chasing a human … he was caught and absorbed into a bigger black cloud! Cheers Hilary

      I’ll hopefully stay put for a while too!

      The only building I can think of that you can see is the Colonnade. It’s actually white but it does reflect colours, especially at sunset. Here’s a link-

      As for the joke, it’s nothing as exciting as your dragon! All will be revealed when I post my FF story next Wednesday but don’t get excited, it’s pretty feeble!

        Thanks Keith – the thing I saw was orange, as ever orange can be, and of a more elongated flatter dome … who knows – neither of us … but thanks for having an idea … I’m off to be blown along the front – cheers Hilary

        Now I’m intrigued! I’ve steered clear of the prom for the last few days for obvious reasons, but I’ll take a look later!

    We’re doing our best to spoil it with satellites, space stations… I’m sure we’re not too many generations away from space station convenience stores.

    LOL at the riddle at the end. Loved the poem too. I believe there is such a place, in our hearts if nowhere else. And, that’s what matters! Now about that riddle…
