Cloud Photos and A Poem For Your Sunday


It's just all about clouds today in Dallas...
I hope you enjoy these pictures that I captured while out for a stroll.
And, "The Cloud", an 1820 poem written by Percy Blysshe Shelley



The Cloud


I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers,

From the seas and the streams;

I bear light shade for the leaves when laid

In their noon-day dreams.

From my wings are shaken the dews that waken

The sweet birds every one,

When rocked to rest on their mother's breast,

As she dances about the sun.

I wield the flail of the lashing hail,

And whiten the green plains under,

And then again I dissolve it in rain,

And laugh as I pass in thunder.

Lisa that cloud looks like something out of a Ghostbusters movie

I agree George Souto or a flying the clouds in the movie Independence Day when the spaceship was coming down through the atmosphere

Pretty clouds and the blue in the sky is very blue. Is it cooler now, Lisa?

Hi Lisa,  Thanks for sharing the cloud pictures and poem.  I like the curiosity and imagination that clouds can bring out in some people.

I could stop and look at the clouds all day long Lisa. I wouldn't get much work done but I sure would be relaxed. I also enjoyed your poem and picture support.

One of the good things about Oklahoma is like Texas, the cloud formations.

Morning Lisa.

The clouds were in abundance around my neck of the woods yesterday.  Sure did help with the heat

Good morning Lisa - they look mostly like cirrus clouds with a little hint of rain.  Rain is good.

Can't really go wrong with seeing clouds in the sky, unless I guess if they are mean looking clouds that are going to wreak havoc on the earth beneath us, haha.  These clouds look nothing like that though!

Thank you very much for sharing your photograph and the paired poem. 

We could use a little rain for the flowers in our garden.
