Cloudshapes day 22

This is based on all three photos. You can see them on Paul’s blog here.


If the sun is fire
and clouds are ash
what is the blue?

Mirror, illusion, a wish?

Skyscape always in motion,
tracked and driven
by the winds of the world,

trawled, not by the finger of God,
but by veils of cormorants,
grey herons,
white egret drifts,

through reds and blues
and into night.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
