#CloudWriter #Cloudshapes. Day One. What shapes can you see? What stories are developing? Writers and artworkers have been fascinated by clouds and what they see in them for centuries. This challenge features three different cloud shapes a day for thirty days. You may respond to one, two or all three photos. Could you write on the day you saw the photos and email your drafts to me, with a short, third person bio?

The grey mass
turns swiftly
into a fleeting
figure

delightful
in
strangeness
and
music–

Ariel!

(response to KANE 1)

Volcanic cloud

Lava flow
cracked grey
a glimpse of Pompei
beneath the smothering ash

and deeper
the billowing sea
and the dead light
guiding them home.
