Clouds in the Corner of my Eye

I look up, what do I see above me
Cloud formations shown in awesome new ways
Always different the clouds I sure see
Layers upon layers they sit, portray
I lift up my cares and glories away

Beautiful yellows and greys together
With a little peach mixed simply within
Light in the corner of my eye gathered
Brings awe and splendor reflects off my skin
The clouds leave my life totally open

    Poets have a way to say what Robert Frost advises to say the common in uncommon ways and that the aim of a poem is song. The line ...Light in the corner of my eye gathered...is song! The little mountain cloud has been festering in my mind for a haiku form, originally I composed a tanka: I wath clouds merge/one into one bigger one/giving themselves up/forgettinhg what was/for what is. Thank you both for loving my little cloud. Haiku become alive to me as I see them living in my heart's eye.
