The Palace in the Clouds

February 9, 2023 - Reading time: 2 minutes
The palace in the clouds, so high and grand,
Shining bright and true like a diamond band.
Twinkling stars each night to light their way,
Majestic view of earth from day to day.

Dreamy art adorn its walls divine,
Like tapestries of time they intertwine.
Beds of snow white linens fill the hall,
Embrace its beauty as if nothing at all.

Stairs that spiral up into the sky,
Carrying kings and queens who pass them by.
Tall towers with flags waving in the breeze,
Remind us mortals of our humble knees.

Peaceful haven for those lucky few,
Fate calls them there where dreams come true.
Serenity calms within this place,
Far away from mankind's own disgrace.

Its walls are adorned with dreamy art that looks like tapestries of time, and its hall is filled with snow white linens. The spiraling stairs carry kings and queens with flags flapping in the breeze. The palace provides tranquility and peace far from humanity's shame. It is a place where dreams come true for the fortunate few who are summoned by fate.

The sonnet's first four lines depict a palace in the sky, high and grand, with a diamond-like shine. Every night, the stars guide them, and they have a magnificent view of the Earth from day to day.

The last six lines describe the stairs that spiral upward into the sky, carrying kings and queens who pass by. Tall towers with flags waving in the breeze remind us mortals of our meager knees. It is a peaceful haven for the fortunate few, where fate calls and dreams turn out to be true, providing serenity far from mankind's disgrace.
