Blue skies use white clouds
like painters use canvases:
they convey beauty

Skies entertain clouds
in their limitless ballroom:
Gala of nature

* * *

Watercolorists:
Cloud artists form and transform
dancing in sun glow

Margherita -

Each one of these captures a perfect moment of expression. Think I'll have to go lay down in the grass and stare up at the sky now! :-)

Thank you so much, dear Bobby, for the kind comment.

Thank you kindly, dear Shellie, haiku is a good exercise to bring across a message with just a few words, isn't it? I loved the one you posted in the Corner very much.

Dear Bill, the clouds are so inspiring! Thank you so much!

Dear ARH, thank you, yes we were enjoying the day and honoring nature in a very similar way. It feels so good to be aware of the beauty that surrounds us.

Dear Michael, thank you so much, an arctic wind like you must amuse himself to play with clouds, I am sure .... whooooooooooooo

Dear Diana, thank you for your loving comment. Yes, that's the place where we can meet with Flicka and King Mizar I and other friends ... I often "see" Mizar smiling there and then making grimaces before dissolving ...

Thank you, dear Jimmy, yes clouds can take the shape of almost anything they wish to represent.

Dear Indigo, haiku Master, it's so nice to find you here, thank you. Yes, do that! I have discovered a new passion: watching clouds. It is simply amazing what happens up there. These days are perfect for observation here. I was late yesterday afternoon for an appointment because I was so fascinated by the clouds' performance, that I forgot to look what time it was!

Dear Lindsay, thank you so much. Usually I write a poem and then search for the best picture to go with it. I love to take pictures of clouds, but this is not mine. I tried to post my own pictures here, but it never works.

Dear Ida, you are at least as good as me at haiku, but you can be better than me I assure you.
Go skywatching and give it a try. But of course any other topic will do too. Thank you so much.

Yes I am passionate about clouds! ... and about stars too of course. Let's go and sky-gaze!

Love,
Margherita

Come play with me among the clouds, girlfriend! Your haiku is literally 'uplifting'! I sense the joy and freedom in poetic depictions of those heavenly bodies of white sailing the blue skies!

I am particularly fond of:

  Skies entertain clouds
in their limitless ballroom:
      Gala of nature

much applause for these 'pennings' !!

My Angelo Terrestre, thank you! Now that would be fun up there with you, a pure cloud bliss!

Yoinn dear, thank you for the charming reply.

Dear Hal, it's so nice to see you here. Thank you from my heart.

Thank you so much, dear Lori, it makes me happy whenever I see you around.

Dear Michele, yes let's do it, often and with passion, to honor nature is such a priority! Thank you!

Dear Bruce, I love it when you deem my thoughts worthy of your special kind of appreciation, an applause! Thank you.

Thank you, dear Vandana, for stopping by and telling me you liked it.

Oh, dear Diana, you know King Mizar does many adorable things and I know you understand. Flicka surely knows too.

Dear Bloodline, I enjoyed seeing you back after a little break and I thank you for your loving comment.

Love and joy to all.
