Clouds

.

Clouds morphing,

chasing through the sky

.

storming in a buffalo,

scooting off a lamb –

.

shifty creatures

drawn by the wind.

Polka-dotted sky

white-cheeked clouds mooning the earth

pansy smiles and winks.

Last night

I saw your moon

silver,

waxing full

between the clouds,

its hug

wrapping me to sleep.

.

This morning

I saw your sunrise

coral,

spreading low

through the clouds,

its breath

flushing over my cheeks.

.

Tonight

I see your sunset

violet,

easing down

below the clouds,

its rays

combing out my dreams.

Fierce clouds blow apart

setting sun calls it a day

storm fades into pink.

Moon blazes a trail

through the cottage cheesy clouds

waxes victory.

Feathered paint on blue

white contrails and faerie wings

Gaia strokes the sky.

Polka-dotted sky

white-cheeked clouds mooning the earth

pansies smile and wink.

Under the apple tree

harvesting gold

she leans

on the last flush of summer

and dreams.

Bees gather her calm,

spiders spin up the sun

and high above, breezes

start painting the sky –

for tomorrow

the woolly clouds come.
