Sky Poems: 1/15
Nature, Sky
Parade of Clouds
My name is Margaret Dorste, and I live in Kailua Kona, Hawaii. Even as a child I enjoyed writing poetry. Now that I am a semi-retired teacher, I have more time to express my feelings about issues that are close to my heart through poetry: family, children, nature, and the environment.

As I lie on my back,
Gazing up at the sky.
I see two fleecy lambs,
Bounding by.

And all of a sudden,
What do I see?
Why, a big polar bear,
Glaring down at me.

Now there
s a dragon,
Breathing white fire.
And it
s replaced in a poof!
By a monkey swinging in a tire.

The parade continues,
With a ship floating on a white sea.
Then there
s an elephant,
Waving its trunk at me.

Watching the clouds is so much fun,
They are whatever you want to see.
All that is needed,
Is to let your imagination run free.
