Thoughts

#Thoughts #Bubbles #Marshmallows #Clouds

Salford 9th July 2018

The light little cirrus and stratus

help themselves to their

own little place in the sky

until the cloud departs they’ll be overlooked by the

great thinker of the skies himself – cumulonimbus – who’s

happily floating over the air

thinking about their next destination

some might call them Marshmallows, others call them ‘thought stores’

Clouds – a reflection from inky

Now living during autumn 🍂 in the north of England, you tend to see a few of these.

When the wind makes its way east or west, they tend to follow its path

They’ve got funny names as well …. cumulus is the cloud ☁️ shape they use on the tv weather forecasts

When they expect a change it goes from a white cloud to a rain 🌧 cloud, if there’s a chance of sun ☀️, they put a cloud with the sun behind it…⛅️

The long thin ones are stratus, whilst the fast movers are nimbus club these together and you get nimbostratus and the really big ones cumulonimbus (don’t like being out when they turn grey)

Cotton candy

Salford 9th April 2017

a sweet poem for the color your world challenge by inkdropk

#poetry #confectionery #cyw #coloryourworld #cottoncandy #candyfloss

 

whispy wires of candy

softly rising into a soft tornado

gathering in pace as it goes

 

sensational sugar collides

against the  tornado catcher

fallen to be reused again

 

whisps gather pace

collecting speed and sugar

as a sweet cirrus begins to grow

 

floating sweet dreams

fly high in the air

caught by the ice cream man

 

man looking in has to use great skill

to gather the coloured pink cloud

to create smiles on waiting faces

Storm II

Storm

Something, they say, is brewing

The clouds of cirrus are circling, and getting bigger in the wind

Over the heads of everyone , whether on land or sea

Rain isn’t forecast for today – but tomorrow ?  they’re saying torrential.

Maybe its best, if we just lay anchor – and Batten down the hatches.

Raindrops II

Creative clouds

In the sky, create

Round, watery artworks on the

Roadside edge, forming little lakes

Umbrellas and wellingtons at the ready

Something wet has made a splash.
