Announcement: Thanks to all who responded to my recent blog post! The bird seen in the right side of photo was a hawk. This bird of prey is a frequent flyer in this area. 

Ironically, perhaps, I found a Daily Post photo challenge,  Sky, that is spot-on with my recent Cumulus Catch. Due to the timing of this challenge,  I thought that I would linger a bit on the cloud theme, sharing my photo of an arrow cloud here and a couple of poems below.

This week has offered a feast of planets in the night-time sky. Check out EarthSky site!

However, it is the day-time clouds that mostly draw my attention, even lead to a poem or two. These two poems were written a few years ago, in response to a prompt at Poetic Asides. On a Grateful Friday, I would like to share these “sky” related poems which were inspired by an online group of poetic voices for which I am so grateful to have met.


Sitting on the back deck
Coffee in hand
Feels like I am in Montana
Or maybe Saskatchewan
The cumulus clouds are rolling
Changing their shapes
Sometimes there are camels
Or elephants or apes
In the big sky like Montana
Or prairie wispy dogs of Saskatchewan


I could sit and watch
All day
First a “J”
Then a boot
It morphed into a butterfly
White and pristine
Transformed into a llama
Then galloped away.

Both poems posted November 16 ‘09 at Poetic Asides November 2009 PAD Challenge


Have a great weekend, All!
