Spinal Cloud, a Poem by Mark Tulin


I form my clouds
like a child
using an Etch A Sketch
of love and curiosity.
My magical mind
draws the clouds in the sky
with the tips of fingers
and the voice of my soul.

I build my clouds
until it forms a spine
that extends high
above the celestial sky.

Like an artist,
I arrange my clouds
like a fluffy dream,
seeing the world
from the inside out,
reflecting the miracles

I am an author, poet, humorist, and short story writer from Palm Springs, California. I write about various topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia to my years as a family therapist and finally to my soul-searching in California. These are poetic narratives that may have humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.
