The cloud

well nigh intense blue skies
can't compensate nor vanish
that one small white tactile cloud
showing its presence

    I love it when I am high enough that clouds cast shadows on the ground. Your cloud in the poem made me think of it.

    Hello Elly, again... I know this cloud, somehow I feel connected to it. I'm just playing around.... I'm enjoying myself here today. My clouds a lot heavier than this one. always~ Linda

    I can picture the view, but only in mind's eye. We usually have a fair mixture of sun and cloud... Enjoyed your vision :)

    Hi Rex. My view is hidden behind the "About the poem" 'button' just above the title... IF you're interested.. you can see what I saw , inspired me and enjoyed so much.. TY for taking the time to read and comment. Dutch greetings Elly. PS Dutch skies are mostly clouded so this was an exceptional view!
