A Home in Cumulus Clouds

A Home in Cumulus Clouds
We play under a cumulus shadow…

A Home in Cumulus Clouds

1.) Cumulus

We play under a cumulus shadow

to slide from this height near cirrostratus

with other children of equal status

in hopes that waves of peaceful clouds follow.

Our home within these noctilucent clouds

the ones I find myself standing under

either soft white or black before thunder

a vastness up above where below crowds.

Each journey begins inside the ocean

where temperature of water decides place

where water changes between many forms.

A reminder of past condensation

here at the park with clouds of every race

so radiant this sky to break all norms.

A New Home in Cumulus Clouds
To be oblivious inside belief…

2.) Stratocumulus

To be oblivious inside belief

when standing below this morning glory

a moving sun creates its own story

my daughter points to cloud shaped like a leaf.

To feel the need to know Asperitus,

to be able to point these out to you

before the cloud formation moves from view

to replace with the white altostratus.

What happened to childhood rites of passage

to believe in the need of ritual

the intention of our evolution.

Each wave of cloud carries a new message

when days in parks become habitual

the Monkey Bars are the revolution.

A Home in Cumulus Clouds
To find heaven is absurdly narrow…

3.) Polar Mesophere

To find heaven is absurdly narrow

when looking up into this cloud atlas

made up of shadowed altocumulus

only broken off by flying sparrow.

Our imaginations on the polar

ice caps where we see polar stratosphere

and colors reflect as if a mirror

or canvas painted with a paint roller.

As arms reach out from actinoform cloud

and hug the sky for as long as it takes

to forget that you fell and scraped your knee.

Who knew these cumulus would speak so loud

at volumes covering up our mistakes

to turn my anger into gentle plea.

    You got me at ‘cloud’, Jamie, I love them all and have always had a profound relationship with clouds. I use them in many of my poems, in art and in metaphor as they fascinate me so. Great work and lovely pics to inspire, my friend. Take care, Jamie.

    Oh, how I love clouds and you have given great tribute to them, Jamie. Clouds have always fascinated me and I often see images in them, as if they are telling a story. Wonderful work, Jamie. Take care.

    Nice work Jamie. Clouds to me always seem like an act of God. So beautiful in so many ways, so many stories they can tell, so many formations they can make. They are just majestic, and you did a nice job with the technical/ scientific aspect as well. Nice job.

    You took me to great heights Jamie, I’ve had my head in the clouds since birth. I’ve loved and still do enjoy them, so many patterns and inspirations I get from them. I don’t think there is a poet alive nor dead who hasn’t in some form or fashion penned about their many formations, you sir have done a majestic and bold service and description of them. I loved these formations of yours and the photos exquisitely offered. Thank you for sharing your talented pen with us again, it’s a cloudy day up here in Canada, so will get out, look up and think of this fluffy experience you shared with me. Bravo.

    Thank you for your kind comments. I moved into a new valley within the last few years and I feel I have started to understand the clouds I encounter everyday. I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and thank you again for stopping by to read. Jamie
