In the clouds I see things
that only I see
shapes that form pictures
I want them to be

by A. Marie

Grasses bob, the trees press, expand; press, expand as lungs.
Loyal speaker, who spake the first murmurings – whistler at the window.
What’s that? Faces stack, knotholes of wisps in the darkness,
agape and wakeful just as I, truculent foreheads, lined lips, I’ve a wife
who died, is she there? Another unholy moaner outside, watchful.

moving his trunk gallantly around;

Walking in his own stride

Corners curl, covered chameleons

Crumple cliches, clouds clone

Clock clawed, chirps cease

Tale of a Bird

by Tanya

Up I fly
above the clouds,
but the clouds fly
above me too…

Off I go,
yet I don’t,
that’s the beauty
of an edge-less home!

the falls

by briannadawn

i often envy cherry blossoms and clouds
because when i slip, my fall hits hard
i scrape my hands, bruise my knees –
yet when i stand under cherry blossom trees
as a breeze kicks up its heels, all i feel

Smokestack Hypnosis

by Nick Anthony

Frothy foam floating atop steaming chemical vats
Boils, becoming warm white clouds
Climbing up cold concrete columns,
And billowing forth from icy smoke stacks.

Rain Clouds

by Miriam Hurdle

Yearlong drought, harsh dry air.

Grass turned golden brown, flowers shrunk.

Water rationing!

Throat burning, nostrils bleeding.

Humidifier needed.

Let the grass be golden brown,

Up Above

Swirl in whispered breaths
Envelop me in sweet caress
In your ever infinite depths

Encouraging the sun

by Jem Croucher


Fragile and fleeting
a delicate sun
Kissed a few flowers
and then it was done

Hiding behind
a dark wall of grey
It bid me farewell
and was gone for the day

Cloud Rider

by Scott Andrew Bailey


Fantastical clouds today
Rolling over the land
Like a giant wave
Does Thor ride that tube?
To Odin’s disapproving frown
Joy’s deficit
The cost of swings and roundabouts

Poem by Wendy Norman (Seafarrwide)

Some see the clouds outside

Some see the light blazing through

Tell me not only what you see

But how it affects you

Describe your thoughts to me

Each soft peak forming visions to see

Mystic Dragons advancing in the air

Wounded by winds sabre glare

Wispy trails beyond our reach

Death’s face
Stares back
Where life once tried
To be,
A stepping stone perhaps
To where we are

Child matures
Into grizzled, old man,
Whiles dogs run
Playful and happy,
Under the summer sun

Up above the Virginia Creeper
Is a whopping great big sky
Great to watch the changing colours
Or the clouds as they pass by

Clouds float overhead
Blown by the wind

Dolphins leap
Cavorting through
Cotton candy foam
Swiftly they fly
Across the setting sun
Disappearing into vapour
And dust

I choose
Mercy over madness.
Kindness over pride.
Love over lust.
Me over what is not growing me.
