WALKING ON AN ALTOSTRATUS CLOUD
O, I’m much lighter than air
Music tantalizes my ears
I have lost all my cares
Vertigo isn’t my fear
Raising my hands through the atmosphere
My star jet is ready to soar and hum
Rising from land to another sphere
Dancing in circles, euphoric I’ve become.
Angels will guide us and point us toward horizons
The wings of our journey will surely give birth
Rhythms are riding the Pegasus pony
Carting us to heaven with our bodies on Earth
Words from the prophets echo in prayer
remembrances from our yesteryears.
Our celestial thoroughfares
bring us to the charioteer
who travels at the speed of light.
As the refrains ring forth so joysome
our buoyancy will surely persevere
igniting this marvelous night.
Receptive to the fondness of the young
we respond positively to this ceremony.
Lifting our spirits and speaking in tongues
we shine in darkness with candlelight.
Feeling intensely about our fabled worth
we enter in splendor the mesosphere.
Once our imagination enabled flight
as we sang in unison our verses one night.
Greeting the lost wanderers, so lonesome
we invite them to join us at the stratosphere.
Cosmonaut in conjunction with an astronaut
will fly through the firmament so clear.
Captivating a throng as they watch
Summoning God to appear
His graces He has now aroused
Krishna and Buddha soon meet at the golden gate
Giving a sermon of peace, so very devout
while beseeching all to end war and curse hate.
Ghostly riders start their engines to thrust
Winds whip against our faces and gust
So come let’s meander and start our cloud walking
You will experience during a séance someone talking
the hidden message of a lost magistrate.
Authors of extravagant passions and lust
have captured our attention with an absolute must.
Freeing ourselves from the surge of gravity
Rising beyond the terrain in fancy
Soon the glamour will lend us to anticipate
our passage from the valley as we mount.
In all our grandeur we will keep skyward bound
soon to be walking on an altostratus cloud.
