Looking upward '82

Written by: Tucker Carwile Jr

                                      I remembered a time in spring
                                         when I glazed upward,
                                      the clouds taking shapes of
                                           trains, elephants, lions and cars.
                                       I could spend hours playing my
                                                games.

                                       Now, when I look up,
                                          those shapes are gone.
                                       In their place, words like cumulus,
                                           cirrus, stratus and cumulonimbus
                                        enter.
                                       
                                        Somehow I like the old games better.
