~ Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #63: Magical ~

In my youth, when I watched clouds billow across blue summer skies, I imagined what it might be like to float with them over this magical place called earth.

Cloud formations shift; they change size, shape and density with atmospheric pressure, moisture level, wind speed and temperature.

And then there’s the shading and color from our sun – more magic!

…and sometimes even seem to chase one another across the horizon.

Whether floating us away, or inviting our imaginations, clouds have magic.

Clouds tell us stories – the ones we conjure in our imaginations – and the one’s we learn through scientific study. Believe what meteorologists tell you about global warming – we are in this together. Let’s influence where we can to insure there will be cloud-magic for generations to come.

    Oooh. Excellent series. I love clouds. My head is usually there, so I know where to find it when I lose it.

  2. I too love to watch clouds. My mother used to recite a poem (not original–I found variations on it online) that I shared with my kids and grand-kids:
    If I had a spoon as big as the sky
    I’d scoop up the clouds as they drifted by
    I’d take them inside for mommy to cook
    and hoped that they tasted as good as they looked.
