A Walk on the Cloud

A Walk on the Cloud

All the while I'm sitting here and watching from the ground the sky explodes with different color. I love to watch the clouds because they are always different..... I Love the whispers of the winds in my ears, Love the moon that hides behind the clouds, Love the stars shining in the sky. I love to watch the clouds, peacefully drifting by silently upon the breeze that touch me every day. They ease across the clear blue sky. I wonder how they build and roll and tumble Just like angels.. That floats on high o'er vales and hills.

When I was a child in my home, which was surrounded by rolling grassy fields& small hills, I used to love walking through the damp grass over the hills in the mist and sense rather than see the cattle grazing. And when it had rained quite hard I could hear the stream below rushing over the rocks. When the sky is gray, sober, and lonely, be the one and only to look at the clouds and wonder how to connect them over and under. Just look at how they blow across the brilliant skies.

Early in the day, the clouds are white and puffy and a sky full of cloud stretching from horizon to horizon is built up of many such clouds and all makes me feel somewhat low above our heads that makes me happy.. Each new shape is quite amusing; this amazing cloud looks like a lamb, it reminds me of a feather, sometime like a sheep, little heart, sometime such as ice cream cones and funny things.

In the beauty of the sunsets the pink paved clouds shading to light purple and finally grey .as the sun set left me full of wonder and sadness at the beauty and fragility of nature. While sun set Such clouds lead up to the purple evening with its sounds of insects and birds’ calls, dogs barking in the distance and the flickering lights of hundreds of cooking fires on the hillsides.

When watching the clouds float across the sky, where skies are bright, I feel Everything changes when the clouds float . It gives me peace, leave behind all the darkness, makes me free from heartache and pain, It gives me comfort, and dries my tears. So clouds mean many things for me, so I just to enjoy their best colours, shapes and the feeling of the cool mist on my face.

While watching the clouds I remember Rabindranath Tagore's Quote;

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”
