A Cloud Canvas

Would you let me paint the clouds for you?

long, languid strokes

lavishly spread

over fading azurite blue

with cosmic brush dipped to ferrule

heavy with heaven

dabbing ashen shadow

betwixt amber wisps

and tranquil towering iced tufts

 

a masterpiece bestowed

for my melancholy muse

heart unknown

    Delicious feast for the soul, imagine a chocolate box Christmas, snow, family around the table, carol singers and that incredible contented sigh that would be the result of such a scene, this piece causes that same emotion in me. A strange analogy perhaps but ‘beautiful prose’ doesn’t convey the feeling I enjoy when reading these words.

    1. Oh Nigel, your ever present thoughtfulness and the scene of contentment you have shared this time make me smile. I’m so humbled that you allow yourself to join me on these little sojourns πŸ™‚

      2. Oh how I’m laughing Arbus! πŸ’• I won’t mention spell check and late night typing and pretend this was intentional. “Oh mighty Arbus, thou art trapped betwixt sea and gathering cloud..” 😜

    1. 😌 Thanks dear one! But I fear that if I do my expectations will not be met… and my creative side my suffer πŸ˜‰ Unless we collaborate with words, then surely heaven shall be ours ☺️
