|Early Morning Clouds over the Atlantic|
Castles, dragons, gods,
Heaven’s clouds mass, forming shapes
Men’s myths born on high
Have you ever looked up at the sky and wondered? I have and I think our ancestors did also, and thus were born the stories and legends of gods, floating castles, dragons, giants, flying horses, and a host of other things. I find the heavens, especially when the skies have clouds in them, to be spiritual. When you add the open ocean vistas it feels like your spirit can fly - up, up and away or sail over the oceans waters to lands found only in dreams.
Spirit, freedom calls
continue your adventure
open gates, fly beyond
When I remember to bring a camera along, I take photos of the sky, like the three photos following this commentary (and the one above). I find that the coolest shots are those where I can see shapes in the cloud formations. Of course a little imagination helps in order to see the shapes and perhaps what you see is totally different than what I see. Still, there are shapes in clouds.
One Friday, while at work, I looked out the window at some approaching clouds and charging ahead of them all was a poodle, looking like it had just come out of the grooming salon after a haircut. The cloud (sorry no photo, was at work after all) looked just like the poodles they show at the Dog Shows on TV where the hair is shaped into those odd poofs. Unnatural look perhaps - distinctive none-the-less. Slowly in morphed into a shapeless mass of clouds which turned dark and then spit out the water in them as a hard rain.The following 3 photos have shapes in them. I’ll tell you what I see in each of them after you get a chance to look them over. If you want to, leave your impression of the clouds in the comments section that follows this post.
So, what do you think you have seen in the above photos? Did you recognize shapes formed in the clouds? There are no right or wrong answers - it is all up to what you can see.
Scroll down a bit and you will see what I think I see in the above photos.
Here's what I see:
Photo 1: Phoenix rising from the ashes of fire.
sun's fire burns sky
from the ashes of dawn
the Phoenix rises
Photo 2: Dragon soaring through the sky, mouth open in a mighty roar.
