Sunday 160 - Into Thin Air


Wispy clouds 
tried with all their might 
to form dragons 
and dogs 
and angels 
but the sun 
melted them into nothingness. 
Leaving the sky 
a singular pallet of blue.
____________

I do love clouds but sometimes it is nice to see a flawless blue sky..so beautiful!

Mama Zen said...

This is gorgeous, Monkey Man!

Mine's up!

Pheromone Girl said...

I miss the clouds, its fun to turn them into animals in my head. When I'm not spoiling the mood, being all scientific and telling people how they dissipate because they're just gathering moisture... I must be so boring at cocktail parties.

MorningAJ said...

I can see a very small dragon, but apart from that it's like that here too. Glad you're having a sunny Sunday!

PattiKen said...

I like this a lot. Clouds a mesmerizing, but sometimes a clear blue sky is so soothing, just what I need after a frantic week.

Stranger said...

Blue skies need a bit of cloud stains for texture.

Beautiful. It reminded me of the suspended feeling I used to feel when I did springboard diving--there's a split second of soaring. I suspect our Arizona sky would burn any clouds that came on the horizon, but then we don't get clouds so I wouldn't know. Argh!

and hours later, here be
my entry.

I've been watching clouds as I swim laps on my back at the community pool. They are so beautiful, like this poem. Pallet of blue alone -- smiple but lovely.

I don't think I've ever seen a cloudless sky.

I always like it when they form breasts...

Celestial Dreamz said...
