Ribbons & Lace — Haikus

RIBBONS 
Clouds tethered in the sky –
pink and almost gossamer
are ribbons this day
 
LACE
Lacey white clouds moving
like they are in haste
to leave the countryside

  1. Just yesterday I looked up to see half the sky blue and the other half covered by cloud formation that I can only describe as a giant, flat ice-shelf in the sky that looked as if it were about to break off and plummet. My rational brain ahd to spend a moment convincing my emotional one that I was not in danger of being crushed.

    1. LOL @ the giant cloud!!!

      When I was a child, I used to imagine that some cloud formations in the sky were soldiers ready for battle. Now, I still have similar thoughts.

  2. This was beautiful Uzoma! I love the imagery in both pieces. How befitting of this beautiful day. I love to take time out of my day to go cloud gazing, and you displayed it wonderfully.

  3. Uzoma, my friend, your words steal my soul to places where physical boundaries don’t exist, where clouds and lace, flowers and light…. all hold hands and sing praises in a language that knows no boundaries… You must… must… do more poems. Have a great weekend!

    1. Aw, such high praise I hold dearly. I wish the inspiration for poem comes to me more often than it does presently. All the same, I happy you’ve continued to enjoy the ones I’ve written.

      A wonderful weekend to you, too 🙂

    1. Hey Robin … I still carry some of my childhood imaginative thoughts about the clouds. 😀 Thankfully Geography tells me there are different cloud formations.

      Glad you enjoyed the haikus.

  4. There is something to be said for observing clouds from below, to then passing through them on foot until above, to think then the possibilities to walk, dance upon, across their denial to gravity’s earthly domain, in the divergent array of colours . Love the motion, emotion of the Haikus, Uzoma! 🙂

    1. A satisfying and poetic response, Sean. I do also marvel at the activities of the clouds above as well as the sprinkling of colors in the sky. However they set the mood for the day remains a fascination.
