SOL March 2019 -- Day 16 -- Little Cloud






Slice of Life story challenge, March 2019
Day 16 -- "Little Cloud"
********************************


I was gazing out my cousin's living room window this afternoon, noticing the sky with its blue patches among the clouds. It inspired me to write this poem --- 



Little Cloud

Puffy white cloud
high in the sky,
blowing along an unseen path....
Where are you going
in such a hurry?
Are you heading somewhere in particular?
Or just following the other clouds?
Will you catch up with others,
and join them
to become an angry mob, 
turning thick and gray and ugly,
unleashing your fury
upon those below?
Or will you meander slowly
along your path,
carefree
and playful,
no destination in mind,
enjoying the view below?
I wish you could tell me.

  1. Love your playful questioning. Most poems focus on the shapes and not the destinations of clouds. You put a fresh perspective on anthropomorphizing these vaporous veils!
