Stormy Clouds with a Hint of Light


The view of dark clouds

The intensity, is it menacing

Or simply drawing me in

To its smoky mystery

As I’m alerted by this evening wind

A slight chill in air but not yet cold

The deep sky does move me

But it does not frighten me ...

As among it there is a view of light

Soft yellow and muted though bright

A warm light blanket of comfort

The towering beauty of the sky in contrast

As we approach another season

Tonight the two merge together

And it’s complex aura starts to feel to me

Like a captivating view

Where hopes and adventures can renew

I love watching the gathering storm clouds and your poem conjures up such wonderful images, which are constantly shifting. Beautifully written.

When I read your title, it reminded me of the pandemic situation that we are all in at the moment.

When I read your poem, the carefully chosen words painted a mind's eye picture of the scene. Cloud formations at different times of the day are fascinating. No two scenes are identical.

You paint the picture beautiful with your words
