Sky-birth (responding to all three images)
There are days when the sky sucks the life
from the earth, feeds on the stillness
the dry, the wet, the leafed and the stony,
draws all into the cloud-bloat above.
We crouch beneath the great presence,
longing for the rupture, the breaking of waters,
to birth a sea of tranquillity.

One thought on “#CloudWriter #Cloudshapes. Day Four. What shapes can you see? What stories are developing in these cloud photos by Julian Day, Gaynor Kane and I?
