Beyond The Clouds

Beyond The Clouds short poem

Uploaded by Dr.Indu Nautiyal


In my childhood fancy
I very often wished
To have a pair of wings
Like the feathered creatures
Having fun in the endless sky

Thinking, if my wish were granted
I would love to rise up too
And fly over the earth
Above the clouds ,
Even beyond them!

Till I reached that mysterious region
Often referred to as ‘ Heaven ‘
That no one alive has ever seen
And yet is believed to exist
At some higher level up there

And if I could really reach that place
It would indeed be an amazing feeling
To move in a world of absolute beauty
Where man has always dreamed to be

Now being mature in my growing years
I know it was merely wishful thinking
Even though man has created wings to fly
Yet the heaven as ever elusive
Still remains an unsolved mystery !

I have been a teacher for about four decades ,but even more than that , a student and learner all along --literature being my favourite subject with special love for poetry , a trait I seem to have inherited from my father,who was a very good poet ,it was he that instilled in me a deep love for poetry early in childhood . Starting as a science student ,I shifted to literature after graduation and and worked on Emily Dickinson's poetry for Doctoral degree. I don't claim to be a poet ,but do admit my inherent love for poetic utterances as and when I find them and sometimes feel inspired to give vent to my own emotions in words that seem to convey them .Honestly it happens quite effortlessly and also leaves me with an immense satisfaction .If it can be termed poetry ,all the more rewarding. .

A Goddess Beyond Any Myth long poem

She’s loved by many but walks alone. It’s not because she has no one to comfort her, or that she isolates herself from those surrounding her, but it’s because she’s all the strength and comfort she needs. While others find

As I walked back to my house, i heard a stranger that passed me by mumbling numbly to himself about why a sidewalk will never unfold itself near the end of a routine and then become a fretwork of shadows.

What were the lies in a truth of the buried day? Fabulous cries? Tears? It was a tremble down in the standing crop of men ready to be genetically modified. Each walk in the city exhausts you to an innocent
