Clouds one’s mind strangely
Nebulous of feel so tight
Sensing to explode

Clouds moving above
Billowing reality
Seeing images

Gather one’s strength then
Threatening black clouds waiting
to impact deluge

For Chev's CARPE DIEM Time Glass # 9  -  clouds
and Kerry's hosting at Open Link Monday at Real Toads


  1. nice parallel between the clouds of a storm and hte clouds of our mind before the personal storm....

  2. The dark vs light, a fight within everything

  3. The inner storm can be controlled by our wits but the outer one is devastating.

  4. When that deluge finally comes, it's going to be a BIG one!

  5. Wow, that is one incredible capture! Nice fitting words to follow it.

  6. Powerful - great tension going on!

  7. Ah.. there is thunder in that brow...

  8. Wonderful verse Hank , very powerful message.

  9. Billowing reality is a striking image :)

  10. You have described the potential strength in a cloud so well

  11. Nice 'cloudy' poem, Hank. It reminded me of the old song, "The Little White Cloud that Rained." The clouds talked, the dark one was the villain.
    ""The Little White Cloud That Cried"

    I went walkin' down by the river
    Feeling very sad inside
    When all at once I saw in the sky
    The little white cloud that cried

    He told me he was very lonesome
    And no one cared if he lived or died
    And said sometimes the thunder and lightning
    Make all little clouds hide

    He said "Have faith in all kinds of weather"
    "For the sun will always shine"
    "Do your best and always remember"
    "The dark clouds pass with time"

    He asked me if I'd tell all my world
    Just how hard those little clouds try
    That's how I know I'll always remember
    The little white cloud that sat right down and cried"


    1. Thanks Dr Jim! I went to You Tube and there was a 1951 number "The Little White Cloud That Cried" sung by Johnny Ray! It's most fascinating! Thanks for sharing!


  12. Clouds, whether in our minds, or in the sky, do carry great power and command.

  13. we could use some clouds to explode here on the California coast ~

  14. Strking take on clouds ... explosive I'd say ;-)

  15. like the clouds every moment is changing, and we must meet the shift from where we are… hopefully with kindness. I loved your poem Hank.
