TREES?? CLOUDS!!

ONCE UPON A TIME SOMEONE WROTE THAT HE WOULD NEVER SEE A POEM AS LOVELY AS A
TREE. A TREE??
AS FOR ME?? HE DIDN’T LOOK UP HIGH ENOUGH, YOU SEE.
I WILL TAKE A BIG MAJESTIC CUMULUS CLOUD!! YESIREE. IN FLORIDA, JUST GET A
LOUNGE CHAIR- TOO MANY RED ANTS- A GLASS OF ICED TEA, AND RELAX WHILE
WATCHING AN EVER- CHANGING SUPER SHOW FOR FREE!! A CLEAR BLUE SKY? BORING!
AS FOR ME?? LOOK UP. IS THAT A BUNNY? AN ELEPHANT? WAIT A FEW MINUTES- MAYBE
3. THE SHOW CHANGES AGAIN- YOU’LL SEE. LOOK UP- WAY UP. ARE THEY CONTRAILS?
WOW, MUST BE WINDY UP THERE. LOOK HOW THEY ARE CHANGING SHAPE. A TREE?? IS
THAT AN ANVIL WAY UP THERE? ARE THOSE CUMULUS CLOUDS GETTING DARKER? OH ME.
WHAT IS THAT RUMBLING? LIGHTNING! OH GEE. ARE THOSE CLOUDS LINING UP? OH NO-
HURRICANE WARNINGS, POOR ME. DAY 3- WE’RE CLEAR AGAIN- HAPPY!!! OH MY
GOODNESS, WHAT DO I SEE: THE ULTIMATE CLOUD SHOW- A RAINBOW!!! YIPPIE!!
