I have a thing for clouds..

From Michael B Davis

Clouds Play

Clouds, they live in a theatrical realm
Behind nights curtain they quietly roam
Rehearsing their parts without a sound
Till mornings sun greets dew laden ground

They play their part drifting on a breeze
Without so much as a care, if you please.
Vanishing at times then appearing bigger
Doing as they wish, I’ve now come to figure.

They travel where their heart desires
Valley and mountains windy spires
High above oceans, the sun plays a part
Shadows created that randomly dart

On and on the mist does travel
Over beaches sand and variegated gravel
Canyons of streets and high building tops
Cloud shadowed concrete that never stops

Back road towns and dusty roads
Flower covered fields where color explodes
Under the mottled noon day sky
These thespian clouds go rolling by

Playing their part ‘til curtain drop
O’ wondrous mist this play must stop
Though once again behind nights veil
Rehearsing tomorrows misty tale.

evening at the RV park..

Yes, I do love looking at clouds!


  1. LOVE your cloud photos! I'm a big fan of clouds too although most of the clouds we see here in the NW are gray, leaden & low-to-the-ground clouds.

  2. Hi Dawn..Haven't been keeping up w/blog reading lately. Skimmed thru' your last few.. this is a sweet post on clouds..the sky is endlessly fascinating!

  3. Dawn, your pictures are gorgeous! We love AZ and also the Sonoran Desert Museum. I lived in the desert for over 15 years. We will be heading there soon for a nice vacation with family and friends...can't wait. Been seeing many birds around here lately, I love seeing the Robins, always a good sign that warmer weather will soon follow.
