about clouds


"I never saw an ugly thing in my life: for let the form of an object be what it may- light, shade and perspective will always make it beautiful"- John Constable

White mounds of 'fluff'
intertwining seamlessly
Forming indescribable pictures
figments of the imagination
transforming into various
shapes on demand
Masking the striking blue
sky, bursting in its vastness
and the brilliant, blinding sun
brightening all with its penetrating rays
Blocking the beauty of the azure
One eye blink and all changes
Dark clouds come zooming through the atmosphere
But the sun is striving to appear
It has succeeded.
