I was transported by your title even though I know we cannot touch the sky--but your poem lifted me! I admired your rhymes and reminiscences. Smiles- Joan

A nicely written poem about the pursuit and achievement of goals. I enjoyed the flow and rhyming of your lines. I think that touching the sky is a broadly desired goal by many children. With time, they outgrow the dream. You've been blessed to reach your goal another way...on cloud 9. Very sweet. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful poem full of vivid imagery. I could imagine myself climbing those Appalachian Mountains right along with you. My grandparents were from Tennessee and I always loved visiting them when I was young. Thank you for bringing back those memories!

Your poem is ever so "Allegorical, ethereal and spiritual." Yes, Poetry can lift up to touch the sky, and your poem certainly "gave me extreme high."
I'm so glad you discovered your talent and that you share it so freely with friends on Fanstory.

This beautiful poem make me tear up and smile all at once. I love how you have paralleled that childhood dream of touching the sky to the reality of
going to Heaven.

Hello Jay,

You have an exceptional talent for writing poetry, my friend and I enjoy reading each and everything you post.

I agree, writing poetry does sort of put you on cloud nine, especially when you finish one and then you realize, "this is one of the best poems I have ever written."

Have a great weekend, Jay and keep writing...Bill

This is a beautiful poem. Your meter and rhyming pattern are pleasing to read. I love your message about reaching the sky as a youth, and reaching the sky again with death. (Or rebirth into heavenly life. ) Great job and thank you for sharing.

An excellent poem, Jay. The sky can be reached in more ways than one and for you that is poetry and a fine job you do of it too.

A pleasure to read and review this rainy Friday evening. Many thanks for sharing. :)

Gloria
