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 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.
