I have created two cloud with the help of two virtual boxes running single node OpenStack. Both of these virtual boxes are in same 10.10.x.x/16 network. I have one vm in each cloud. Is it possible to have vms migration between the cloud of these two virtual boxes?

You can go to your glance repository and get and download your VM image to the other cloud setup.And then You can add this downloaded file with the command

 glance add name="MyImage" is_public=true disk_format=qcow2 container_format=bare < {name of the downloaded image file}

Please keep in mind to set the image format and container format as it was earlier on your other cloud setup.

Maybe this can solve your problem.Have a Nyc Time :)

location of glance images will be /var/lib/glance/images by default.

ssh into the other cloud and do all this operation. for this you may need to assign some public IP to your VM.
