Clouds

What are they trying to tell us?

Then again, maybe it’s not so much what they’re trying to tell us, as what we’re trying to tell them.

“There is divinity in the clouds.” ~Lailah Gifty Akita

“Clouds in the sky very much resemble the thoughts in our minds! Both change perpetually from one second to another!” ~Mehmet Murat ildan

“There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds.” ~G.K. Chesterton

“There was a star riding through clouds one night, and I said to the star, ‘Consume me’.” ~Virginia Woolf

“I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
from up and down, and still somehow
it’s cloud illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all”

~Joni Mitchell

Clouds aren’t divine, they only seem like it.

On the other hand, imagination is.

  4. I love the photograph clouds. I’ve got one cloudy sky with a square hole right through the clouds. It looks like the windows of Heaven are open.

  8. Love the photos. I hope that all of you have lounged in the grass and found images in the clouds. Do children even think to do that now with all the electronics?

  13. I love looking at clouds. These are certainly beautiful. I remembered being on an island driving on a sunny street when suddenly a dark cloud with rain started approaching. It was amazing. 5 minutes later it was gone
