Clouds

Ethereal, feathery wisps,

puffy, cushioney pompoms,

ominous charcoal giants

threatening from up high –

clouds are the children

of Water and Earth

cradled in the Sky.

 

Father Water begets

from oceans and streams

rivers, lakes and dams,

spawning all clouds

which later release

torrential hail,

dowdy drizzle

or serene snow

 

After which Heaven’s

blue bosom is bare.

  1. Kim, Wow! I loved the transit from clouds of all types to rain and then the clearing of the sky. Such a great circle. And your descriptions were so eloquent! Excellent!!!
