Clouds - Poem by David Wood

From spring's soft cape gently blows wandering clouds.
Cool winds create billowing wisps in gentle airs
Casting moving shadows in green fields below.
And in fields of golden corn prickly ears do blow.

To large towering clouds, cumulonimbus, spiralling,
Swirling, growing rain clouds getting heavy, ready
To drop their contents onto the earth below. Hail,
Thunder and lightning. A spring festival of rain.

No more deep shadows of winter, Snow clouds now gone,
A distant memory of snow and cold days and even colder
Nights where sheep stood frozen in fields of frigid earth
Now give way to warmer dryer days, this start of spring's birth.

    Spring is never too far when winter comes, but nothing beats the beauty of Spring after a long cold, icy winter....

    Your poem presents this feeling beautifully, maybe it also shows how after a turmoil in one's life comes a point when they recover from the lows and gradually prepare themselves for the warm, beautiful days again.. A very well-crafted poem with use of wonderful images and very, very quality language.. Eloquent, sharp, vividly beautiful.. A great write David.. Thorougholy enjoyable. Thank you for sharing, and congratulations on being the poet of the day: -) (Report) Reply
