Clouds Views

Clouds Views prose poem

Photo by kevin dooley

The sky was sunny, the temperature was mild, and the wind was calm and mild
Tornadoes are known to rarely occur here, but the winds can get rather gusty.
There is no hurricane season here, but the summers can often be rather terrorizing
In these parts there is a rainy season in winter that often produces very little rain
Earthquakes are widely common in California, but not so much in this valley region

As I was saying, the sunny sky had created such awesome beauty on a late spring day
As I drove home, I looked up and into the west, and observed a sunset in the month of May
I tell you, the bright clouds nesting in the western sky is enough to take your breath away
Clouds. Dust of God’s feet; perhaps today he portrayed his feet being comforted in the setting sun

The clouds were snowy white and perhaps, they too were staring at their own beautiful sight
San Francisco embraced us with beautiful views, and captured us with the flight of kites
Whether renting or buying in the City by the Bay, the views were always a part of the price
Clouds? I don’t remember clouds there, but most days, after the fog, turned sunny and nice

Where I live, there’s no Golden Gate Bridge, no super curving street, but there are views
I miss the fog and the fog horns, and I wish we had the cool chills on those hot summer days
But I wouldn’t take anything for the cloud views that never cease to overwhelm me
Sometimes, my mind flows to the city of hills and chills, and the views from Twin Peaks
But I like Sacramento with views of the High Sierras, and I like the clouds I saw today
