A Cloudy Poetry Friday!

Mona gave us full range on the word, "clouds"

I need a title....any ideas?

joni said it all
or did she?
how many sides do clouds have?
from the ground up
overcast lower stratus
stormy cumulo-nimbus
dark and threatening
troubled and ominous
obscuring the real issues
in our minds made murky
by this cloudland
of upper haze
and evaporated
a swirling funnel-

but -
we can vault
through the vortex
and land
on light cotton balls
billowing like sails on a Clipper
blissful and elated
on cloud nine
the highest heaven
is there a cloud ten?

I'm trying to come up with a better title than Steve's. I am not succeeding.

Hi! What lovely pics of sky and tornado(?). I've never experienced one before and I hope I do not have to!

First of all; lovely pictures and then a very good poem!
I was thinking shape of skies is like shape of snow flakes. They are endless and uncountable.

Another stunning poem M.O.I. I sort of like 'Is There a Cloud 10?' for a title, the last line in your poem. You are such a word artist, wow!!

Steve: Great title! Yeah, you're surely The Wizard of OOOZ the way words come out of you!

Jocelyn: too.

Nancy: Glad I give you healthy air! Thanks. Steve's so funny and quick...check out his blog.

Meno: Me neither!

Gewels: Steve pulls throuh again! Thanks!

Topchamp: Thanks...Poetry Fri. is always interesting.

Twilite: Yes it's a tornado...we've had a few around here and you don't want to experience one! I have nightmares about them.

Renny: Never two the same! Thanks.

Lynclay: Thanks for the kind words! Neat that an artist like you thinks of a writer as a word artist!

Teri: Thanks...try the poetry Friday sometime. You'd probably come up with some interesting takes on the words.

Lovely photos and poem. I like STeve's and Lynclay's title ideas. Of course, there's always some variation of Joni's title - "Both Sides Now and Then" or something.

David: Thanks! Ha! Joni's the best and I couldn't even begin to approach her depth. Titles are sometimes hard to pin. I usually start out with one and then change it after I've finished. Yeah, I do like Steve's and Lynclay's.

I never tire of watching the sky and the clouds. They always are a reminder of how very small we really are in the true scheme of things.

Love clouds. Always a new pattern, a new sight, a new thought. Nice words about the clouds.

Coll: And the sky is never the same way twice. The cycle of weather never ends.

Brooksba: I just love to fly above them and through them...except if there's bad turbulance!
