Cloud Watching

Mommy and I played a game today
We laid flat upon the grass
She said to watch the clouds roll by
She said, “Study them as they pass.”

The sky was blue as the ocean
Fluffy clouds far as we could see
They tumbled and they swirled
Then a puppy looked down at me.

His ears rolled to the left and right
Then suddenly he was gone
That cloud then formed a pirate ship
As I watched there from the lawn.

We saw animals and people
As the day ticked slowly by
There were so many things to find
As we gazed into the sky.

The clouds are always twirling
They look down on you and me.
There’s magic all above us
It only takes time to see.

Sweet Lisa - really sweet.

My daughter and I used to look at the clouds for shapes. It was so much fun and always took me to a place where I could get lost in her imagination.

Oh, this is lovely! I remember so well the long drive we took every year from So. CA to Idaho. I would stare out the window as we drove through that vast Nevada desert and see all sorts of images in the clouds.

Happy memories!

Lisa, I too have shared this cloud watching with my kids and grandkids. What a great memory.

I still look at the clouds now for inspiration and contemplation. But what do they tell us these days?
