Looking at the Sky … Skewered


Fluffy white clouds,
Skewered and forlorn,
If you should escape your fate,
Will you be reborn?
Fluffy white clouds,
Will you turn to rain?
Will you flee the southwest skies,
Hover over Spain?
Fluffy white clouds,
What becomes of you
When the desert sun goes down,
Hiding you from view?
Fluffy white clouds,
Do you make your way
To a cave where you prepare
For another day?

  1. Dark, forlorn clouds
    Hover over Michigan, oozing gloom.
    The sun, failing to burst through,
    Slides west, shining only in time to set.

    That is a typical sort of cloudy day in the midwest.
    Not today, though which was hot and sunny.
    Rain in the forecast tomorrow. I hurried to cut the grass today.


  2. I like that description — skewered and forlorn. But I think they will make their way back, bigger and better for another day. 😉


  3. This is neat shoy of the clouds through the railing.

  4. It’s a beautiful shot!

  5. First time to see the sky being skewed. Great shot!! Thanks for sharing!
    The sky

  6. Very pretty!

  7. I never considered piercing the sky, assuming that it is so expansive it couldn’t be done. The spear-like rails stand tall, and point the way upward to a lovely view…

  8. That’s a really interesting perspective–I like it. Great verse, too!
