Horizons void of clouds
How dull would be the scenery
To know them all by name
A visual adventure to attain,
Altostratus, pileus, cirrus, nimbus
Least we forget the all familiar cumulus,

Who has not gazed in amazement at the magnificent array
Billowy clouds on a perfect day?
Standing on the seashore where clouds meet the sea
Inspire the calmest soul to ecstasy,

Imagination soars as clouds pass by
Images, shapes we find appearing in the sky
What sheer enjoyment is achieved by watching nature's wonder,

Restful, meditative, tranquil
Everlastingly inspirational.

  1. And what is a sunset without some clouds. Great poem, great image!

  2. Nice combination; the mystery of the sea and the wonder of the clouds!

  3. Ah! Intriguing and interesting and looks almost like a fisheye image. The clouds and sea go well together. Lovely poem to go with. :)

  4. Thank you, Anna! Actually, it's made by a filter I have called "Cube-Tile" and gives interesting effects in different ways depending on the photo that is used.

  5. I am so tired of the cold weather and this image is so warm and welcoming. To sit on the beach or to wade through the ocean water...

  6. Ahhh, Preston, that does sound heavenly! Thank you!

  7. This makes me think of a beautiful sunny summer day... *daydreaming*
