Christopher Fernie is an enthusiastic cloud poet and has sent this from his Cloud Poetry archive.
CLOUDS AT NIGHTFALL
Inky-blue clouds coalesce as a spiral well
Into which I dip a grey-white quill wisp,
And on unfolding purple papyrus scrolls
I pen an ocean-going ode to you, my love;
Illuminated by yawning moonbeams,
Punctuated by grammarian galaxies,
The velvet vellum of the near-night
Is despatched on my lovelorn sigh,
Praying you’ll see it in your heaven
Or in a cloudy dream not yet coalesced.
