Gray Clouds



When your mind is blank and you really can't think of anything to write, there's always clouds. 


 My archives are full of them, usually in their gorgeous sunset colors. 


I was scrolling through when I came upon these, more subtle, more mysterious than those colored by the setting sun.


But no less dramatic as they swirl and twist to eventually form



a grand lenticular cloud above the less spectacular clouds that cover the mountains below.

Thank you for your comments on Samson's poem for Gracie. I better watch myself because I'm beginning to believe this is indeed a real romance. And so does Bobbi, I think.

  1. Amazing forms! We are so socked in with trees that I can't see much of the sky. I really enjoy yours.

  6. I always look for the faces and figures in the outline of clouds like that. Oops, I spotted a few.
    Have a peaceful weekend with holiday attached.
    Love and peace

  7. Thank you for your kind comment on my blog, I will continue to write and share, and the support from fellow bloggers will always mean so much. I don't have google connect at the moment although I will probably get it so it will be easier to follow :)

    I love this post too, I really love looking at the clouds, they are so fascinating and beautiful.

  10. One of the things I love about living on the plains of Colorado is seeing the clouds. Before we moved to CO we lived in a pine forest and just couldn't see the sky.
    Your clouds look spectacular.

  16. Beautiful clouds. We don't get those kind of clouds in Oklahoma unless they are forming a tornado!!

    I will be in your neck of the woods next week, Inger! Well, kind of...I will be traveling to LA for a school administrator's conference on Wednesday - Saturday. I'm excited (or maybe I'm crazy) to be in LA just a few days before the Oscars!

    I hope you are having an awesome Sunday! ~Jeff
