Cloud Walker – All in a Word Prompt

NefelibataHigh above,
Where humans rarely go
Nefelibata roamed
Writing poems
Creating worlds
Which you and I
Had never known …
Magically composed
Incantations
Taking us into the realm
Of clouds …
Though a picture
Is worth a thousand words
A poetic image
By Nefelibata was worth more …
Until one day
He became
Disenchanted
By the Earth
And no longer flew
In the sky above.

I’ve known more than one poet who could have been called Nefelibata…like Icarus they flew so high, and like Icarus they fell back to the Earth, but who knows unlike Icarus they may fly again!
