    I took the time
    to notice that sky
    so striking that my eyes
    were forced to linger up high
    The clouds so billowy
    fluffy purple white and grey
    the sky appeared to speak to me
    look upon me, it seemed to say
    And within the breaks of clouds
    appeared the clearest purest blue
    not pale or royal in hue, but some
    shade in between the two
    Oh what it would be if we
    could lay amongst this mist
    If the clouds could solidify and
    cushion us as our spirits kissed
    Hoping you were so blessed to
    experience this vision through my eyes
    When I took the time to notice this
    heavenly vision softly painted in the skies

    Wow...this took me back to a time when
    I was a child and used to lay on
    grassy hill tops examining the clouds...
    Thank you Watz - this was beautiful !

    Much
    Peace & Love

    I think I already wrote a piece about rainbows 1poet, I probably saw some unusual hue within the arcs. This piece was inspired simply by staring at the sky one day. Thank you poet.
    I thank you Akilah, I'm glad I could put you back in the place where you admired the clouds.
    The clouds seemed breathtakingly, unusually, awesome that day gempis. Thank you sis.

    It was a beautiful sky that urged my pen to write Rich, and very peaceful feeling, at least at the time. Glad to know you could envision this, thank you.

    I know what the blue sky did to you,
    I sometimes look at your avatar...and just get deep into the beautiful peace it appears to have...when I watch it.
    Yeah, that sunset do all that to me, thanks for sharing your sky.
