Adrift to Dream

Clouds

Lift me into the painted sky
To heights above the mountains high
Adrift among billowing clouds
Away from loud annoying crowds

To heights above the mountains high
Where legends live and eagles soar
The dream my soul’s been searching for
Lift me into the painted sky

Adrift among billowing clouds
Where heaven’s touch will set me free
And guide me where I’m meant to be
To heights above the mountains high

Away from loud annoying crowds
To meditate in solitude
My fears released, then peace ensued
Adrift among billowing clouds

Author Notes
This poem was inspired by my friend Ritchie (9999pool) who introduced me to this poem yesterday. As I was intrigued, I had to try it.

This poem is written in Lisa Style. This is the new ‘Lisa Style/Format’ Poem, developed by “L Sherman”, a member of FanStory. I’m told I’m the third poet to try it.
This style has similarities with some other styles. The repetition in this poem is all based on the opening stanza. Each successive stanza starts with the corresponding line from the first. (Second stanza starts with 2nd line of first, so on…). Also, the final line of each stanza after the first one is the line directly preceding the repeated lines. Second stanza starts with 2nd line of first stanza and ends with the line immediately above the 2nd line in the first, and so on.
The line flow is like this: 1,2,3,4 – 2,5,6,1 – 3,7,8,2 – 4,9,10,3.
There is no line count or rhyme scheme specified.
For this poem I chose a count of 8 and arhyme scheme fell out as: aabb abba abba abba
