Cartoon clouds



Cartoon Clouds


Cartoon clouds float above

Broccoli trees.

While dreams are born

Beneath hope filled skies.

We walk and talk

Search for the days

We didn’t care what others thought.

When we were carefree and fun.

Try to recreate the past

When all we have is now.

Forget yesterday,

I won’t worry about tomorrow.

I’ll live for this moment,

Finding sunshine in the darkness,

And smiling at all the fear

That is present in the world today.

With love, laughter, hugs and

A little bit of silliness,

We can transform all the pain,

The fear.

From doubt, we’ll find faith,

From fear, we’ll find courage,

From pain, we’ll find comfort,

From anger, we’ll find love.

It’s all in perception,

We’ll put on glasses

That add rainbows to everything.

Life will shimmer and sparkle

Always seem new and exciting.


Sometimes all I need to help me change my outlook is a few cartoon clouds. You know the ones I’m talking about, when you look at the sky and the clouds reach out and on forever and it seems like it can’t possibly be real and you just might be living in a cartoon world. I am brought back to childhood emotions of incredible hope, seeing the endless sky and letting my imagination wander. This poem is an exploration of that change of perception, change of outlook. What helps you change your outlook?
