Why not send us your own cloud poetry? Remember to include your full name and where you live.

A Cloudy Day of Art

Kathleen Janick, member 49,856, sent us this tongue-in-cheek poetic expression of her experience in the CAS cloud watercolor workshops hosted by Donna Levinstone and Gavin Pretor-Pinney. The painting here is one she made during the workshop.

Photographer’s Dilemma

Terry Alby, member 40,752, wrote this poem for our Gallery Editor, Ian Loxley. He told us it’s about old photographers who love all the beauty that abounds and has the alternative titles of “Old Photographer’s Don’t Die Young!” or “Don’t Blame the Lens”

“Underdog”

Lorra Rudman sent us several of her poems but this one, entitled “Underdog”, is her favourite and was written in 1984.

Underdog

Cloudy is the underdog
Who dresses all in grey
But has she not the right to joy
As any Sunny day?

She reaches out her rolling strength
To charge me full and strong
To lift me high on passion arms
To nurture me along.

The rays of Sun are always warm
He’s simple to define
But Cloudy’s the romantic one
Whose dark deserves to shine.

From Cindy Medina

Cindy Medina sent us this Haiku which was written Sunday evening, Sept 29. She told us she lives in a desert and this grouping of clouds lay east to southeast, reminding her very much of Midwestern thunderheads.
