UBC Day 12 - Dark Clouds

I haven't been in the best of moods the past couple of days. Nothing puts a dent in my creativity faster than fatigue and worry. Mix those two things together and my Muse is nowhere to be found.

Slowly I'm pushing those dark clouds away to see brighter skies once again. It's a continuous process that takes daily effort but is well worth it.

In the meantime, I wrote this poem, inspired by those gorgeous clouds I took photos of the other night.

Hope you all have blue skies and that any dark clouds quickly pass by!

My thoughts are like clouds up in the sky
Flitting and fleeting, they float on by,
Some thoughts are silly, so light and airy
But some are dark and downright scary,

They rob my sleep and cause me sorrow
Making it seem like there’s no tomorrow,
Stratus cloud thoughts, so heavy and sad
Weighing  me down and making me mad,

Hovering above, they don’t want to leave
They never give me any reprieve,
Negative thought clouds, full of worry
Stealing my joy in an awful hurry,

I’m hoping this storm will soon pass by
Pushing those dark clouds from the sky,
It will be a much brighter day
Once those clouds have gone away.


  1. Aww -- Cat - email me -- let's talk

  2. Send the negative thoughts packing and take care.

  3. So sorry you've been feeling down. I hope it passes soon. *hugs*

  4. My creativity has been lacking big time lately too. I haven't felt well and have been dealing with eye glasses I can't see out of well...hence headaches. Sorry to hear the little black rain cloud has been hovering over you as well. Sending sunshine and happy thoughts your way. HUGS. I applaud you writing this in the midst of turmoil. I have been blocked. When I feel that way or sick, I generally can't write at all. ♥

  5. I hope you feel better soon and those dark clouds just disappear!

  6. I hope you feel better Cat. Meditative breathing seems to help me when I feel scared or when I'm down. Hugs, a whole lof of love and light being sent your way.

  7. Oh, those joy-stealing dark clouds .. I have had them too. Totally understand. Loved your poem- and Im sure that one will help others too. Sending you warm thoughts and big hugs..xx
