A Single Lonely Cloud Floating By

A single lonely cloud floating by
casting a small shadow on the ground
a shadow that changes as the cloud 
is twisted and altered by a breeze

As it slowly moves on, it shape shifts
now a swan but wait a fiery chariot
that thunders by, a forest in the sky
mountains and houses, even a lake

The wind strengthens blowing more
clouds to combine into a shiny city
icicles  hang down forming diamonds
that glitter and twinkle in the sunshine

A single lonely cloud floating by
captures my imagination setting it afire
filling me with wonder as i watch it
put on its own spectacular solitary show

    I havn't sat and really looked at clouds in a long time. This will motivate me to do it. Great imagery.
