Happiness is a Perfect Cloud



Driving the back way into town, suddenly:
Oh! My! God! LOOK at those clouds!
Puffy white picture-perfect storybook clouds
ringing the valley, outdoing themselves, 
truly, the most spectacular clouds
I have ever seen, against 
a perfect blue summer sky.

And there it was:
perfect happiness.

for Susan's prompt at Mid Week Motif: Happiness. I didnt have my camera, so the photo is from another day of beauty-happiness. But yesterday's clouds were the most astounding I have ever seen. Taking my camera with me from now on! I SO wanted to share them with you.

  2. Clouds I am convinced have personality. My favorites are the puffy white ones against an aquamarine sky - glorious. I went for the clouds today as well.
    My poem today is dedicated to all the special people who make me happy - like you Sherry!

  3. Clouds have a bad reputation - as being about sadness. Yet, like you when I see the spectacular forms they can take, I feel sheer joy. Glad you enjoyed some yesterday.

  4. Clouds have this effect on me, too, Sherry. My eldest grandson and I often find messages and meaning in the walk-from-school sky.

  8. NIce. The clouds give me lots of joy as well. So many things to see in them. Getting near home as well after traveling carries its own happiness as well.

  18. Clouds have a way of forming themselves into lots of wonderful images. The best thing is it is not static. There is always something new! Truly said Sherry!

  19. My ipad is going bonkers. Yesterday it only showed one picture. Today I see a beautiful collection of lake and puppies. So glad you got out. This inspired me to break my routines and get out into nature. I must!

  22. Sherry,

    You are quite right about the observations and reactions to cloud arrangements. Some instantly make you feel so upbeat and positive; while the clusters and sheets of greys, simply depress my attitude, especially here in UK! I agree with Mary's comment about those grey clouds..Happiness thrives on a lovely sunny day:)

  27. Yes, Sherry, I know exactly what you mean by your "happiness is a perfect cloud" poem - I have experienced a similar feeling. We don;t spend enough time looking, really looking, at the sky and clouds...
