Longing for a sense of relief
I looked outside myself today
Caught a glimpse of the clouds overhead
How peacefully they drift on by

Effortlessly they float above
In the frosty air
Easing themselves through the bluest skies

Pivoting about
Doubling over upon each other
Like children at play

Twisting and turning
In a heavenly dance
Such grace and poise they display

Each new shape
A delight to the imagination
For one can see whatever they wish in a cloud

Wisps that take the form of majestic towers
Filling with precipitation
Perhaps they will burst tonight

Raining down their precious gifts
Blessing the earth with snow flakes quite rare
A wondrous sight that all may share

Well Said

Beautiful write.
I especially like the part about how one can see in the infinite detail of clouds, whatever image fits ones fantasy. That this is true is a credit to the human condition, as well as to the wonder of nature.
