Endless Skies

One of my earliest childhood memories is laying in the leaves at the bottom of our outdoor basement steps, staring at the clouds rolling by.  I was absolutely mesmerized.  To this day, I love the clouds, so I very much enjoyed writing these haiku.

Crepuscular ray sunset from Telstra Tower, Can...Explosions of fluff
Imagination invades
Deepest of blue skies

Wisps in the heavens
Carry my spirit afar
Afternoon splendor

Straining radiance
Crepuscular ecstasy
Leaves flutter in wind


Another wonderful prompt from Carpe Diem was responsible for seed that became these poems. It’s a wonderful site for inspiration, check it out!
