On Cloud Nine

Nadia Masood

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.” - Rabindranath Tagore

Nadia Masood

“Every cloud engenders not a storm” - William Shakespeare

“There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds.” - G. K. Chesterton

Nadia Masood

"Have you not seen how God makes the clouds move gently, then joins them together, then makes them into a stack, and then you see the rain come out of it..." Quran 24:43

Looking out from the aircraft window, I watched the clouds for the longest time until I felt as if I was floating on them.  There’s this feeling I can’t quite put into words.  I suppose it’s a combination of feeling the greatness of our Creator and realizing how insignificant I am.

    I totally know what you mean…sometimes I feel like lying on those great big puffy clouds [I know, very silly!]. I also remember the Enid Blyton stories of castles built on clouds…every single time!

    I just re-read my comment, and realised it’s the most childish one I had ever written, so far. Oh well! Anyway, wanted to thank you for your comment on my last post, meant a lot…
