Clouds Covered on Here

in #contestlast year (edited)


I have always loved clouds. I am not sure I have ever met a cloud I didn't love. One of my favorite things to do is point my phone up to the sky and take a picture of what my day looks like, then send it to some of my favorite people that also love clouds. Who doesn't love clouds? Raise your hand!

For there is but one lifetime to appreciate and nurture, to live, to love and smile. Fly away, fly away home. Oh, my heart. May you soar to the heavens, for your soul is free. If I close my eyes, looking upward, the shine will burst out loud, illuminating the leaves on the trees and the flowers beneath my feet. Oh, the sensation, the warmth of your sun-kissed love in my soul. Oh, my heart.

Each time I see those clouds, I see the heart of my life slipping up through the clouds. It used to make me so sad, but, that has been replaced by a comfort of sorts, knowing where they are.

There is a contest out there, hosted by the Contest King, @Kus-Knee (Fondly referred to as The Old Dog) that centers around clouds, anywhere, and any kind. How fun is that? You can see the rules and the original post about the contest here!

A merging of the clouds, making its own kind of drama! Hey, you!! Look to the sky!!

I love the crazy clouds, dancing on the wings at takeoffs - which are sometimes called condensation clouds, sometimes vortex clouds. Whichever term you use, it is still a cool sight. When you get up and away, they settle down to dreamy looking skies, as I stare out of my window, I have to wonder if I am the only one amazed at this sight. I look around and can see that so many have lost that wonder of it all and I can only hope to never reach that spot.

The splendor of the day vanishes into the sunset. Is it any wonder that they came up with such descriptive words for the close of the day?

Skirting just barely above the water, probably my favorite kind of cloud. Sometimes the line of vision goes for what seems like miles.

As always, there must be flowers. Always. I dedicate this picture to #MondayRed #ColorChallenge by @Kalemandra, who colors my world every day.

Just like that, these words are done. Good luck with the contest for those that join! All you have to do is drop a photo or two on the contest post and I would upvote the post. Being polite and all, he would never say that, but, I encourage you to do it anyway!! Happy #MonochromeMonday by the always awesome @old-guy-photos! I wish you all things wonderful as we start into another beautiful week! Keep on Steemin!

I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

Oh I am happy you found the time to get in and support the Old Dog! I just knew you had some winner clouds!

Oh and even better to sneak in a mono, that always makes my day!

Oh and best of all, look at that cute little smile. That is a great shot!!! Welcome almost home!!!

A running monologue! :) Who says you aren't a Johnny Carson?

I love clouds but didn't have access to enough of them, but, I just went with the few that I could find. You are right though, I do love clouds and well, Monochrome? I sneak it in, whenever I can. :) Thanks for stopping by and wishing me well.

Have a great Tuesday!

Welcome to come and steal all our chances to win in this contest! (Ha-ha)
I'm glad to see you participate, you raise a lot of value ...

Haha! Not a chance! But, thank you for the vote of confidence, Dan! I was so happy to see your little granddaughter! Congratulations! I think I have been gone too long!

I was sure I would be forgotten!

I am on the train and should be home in a couple of hours. I took the long way home, giving me enough time to unwind and decompress. Who knew vacation would be so hard? :)

Hi, Dan!!!So glad to see you!

!tip .30

Oh, not at home yet? I thought you were at home. Thanks for everything you said here.
I'm glad to see you too! I really feel the joy of seeing a very good friend.

I am on the train and very close. Because of the cruise starting in New York and ending in Miami, it was the most practical way to get home, unless I flew. But, because scuba equipment was being carried, it was easier to go by train where no weight restrictions or how much baggage you have matters.

They have a baggage car.

Thanks, Dan! Have a great night!

I understand, you had large luggage. It was a huge vacation, in my opinion. I think it was good for you and I'm glad. I also believe that you will share with us new parts of what you have spent.

It was so good, I am doing another in 80 days! Of course, I will be sharing some of the adventures! :)

Oh, less than three months! It is good when you have something to dream about, to expect something beautiful to happen. I'm glad.
I think that at this rate, next year you will change your house with a ship ...

Oh, no. I am going by ship because part of the trip will hopefully be Antarctica.

Before that and after that, it will be a destination. But, I do like to cruise, to be honest! :)

And dont forget, I still work!

Welcome back, thank you!

Thank you!!

With pleasure, of course!

Wonderful shots. I still love to just stare at the clouds. Let my mind wander and breath in clean air. I would do this a lot when I was younger and I am sure I will again as my kids get older. The sky is a place that just brings a lot of ideas and thoughts into my mind.

You have a beautiful mind. It shows in the way you write and put things together; and how you appreciate the clouds.

Thank you so much for the sweet comment. There is just something so amazing about the clouds, isn't there? They make such powerful statements about Mother Earth.

I appreciate you stopping by and leaving your words. I wish you a most wonderful day!

What a fantastic series of cloud shots each so beautiful in its own way

If you ever want to travel a long distance, go Amtrak. Best ride ever.

I also love clouds, our country is very dry and we desperately need the rain, and the clouds bring that lovely rain!! (We did have some rain earlier today, which was great!!)

I am so grateful that He blew you a bit of the mist. I have a house on the coast and this summer, there was no rain, so I didn't even recognize the land the house sits on. The damage it creates living without it is unbelievable.

So happy for you. Thank you for stopping in and I hope you will be joining the contest! have an amazing day!

Clouds always tell us what the day is doing...Clouds rule...lol ☀️ 😎 🌞

You gotta love them for that job! Clouds definitely rule! I haven't checked out your posts! Did you get to Steemfest???

!tip.20

Yep they are certainly a every day part of our lives 👍

I had planned to go then i got called away for work and missed it all unfortunately 😒

I heard only 120 people showed. That sounds small! Sorry that you missed it. I know you wanted to sneak peek in!

It was a low amount but it would have been fun a few of my friends when and they had a awesome time because it wasn't a big crowd to handle was just the right amount...lol 🙂

Sky looking so beautiful.

Thank you!

I also love looking up at the clouds @dswigle and my favourite when in a plane is when we fly above the dense clouds, kind of looks like we're being cushioned;) Lovely photography as always!
