CLOUDS IN THE SKY ... I SEE A CAMEL PASSING BY

WAY HIGH
IN THE SKY
I SEE A CLOUD
 PASSING BY
IN THE SHAPE OF A CAMEL.....
WITH MY SISTER BETTY
ALONG FOR THE RIDE!

See .... doesn't that big fluffy cloud look like Betty riding a camel?

OK, OK .... so I didn't see a cloud that looked like a camel in the sky with Betty along for the ride!
But you have to admit I got your attention.

How often have you stretched out in the grass and looked up into the sky to see clouds drifting by soooooooo  sllloooowwwwllllyyyy that they seem to be not moving at all? And they take on shapes
of animals or airplanes .... flowers and butterflies or the face
of  Mahatma Ghandi.
                                        And other clouds seem menacing
              about to explode in 
                              thunder and zig-zaggedy lightning
                                                   ready to
         chase you indoors.


Other clouds aren't clouds at all ....
but smoke drifting up out of the forrest
sending threatening
smoke and ash
and destruction.



Winter clouds are my favorite!
Although I've never stretched out in a snowdrift
and looked up into the sky to watch
clouds drift by - as I have in the summer.
 Most of us see objects
or faces
or scarey stuff
in ordinary places ....
such as the floor
in front of my toilet!

There's one plank of wood
that has the very
distinguishable
image of a
face.
But I won't dwell on that one.

AAAnd then there's the stories and photos in the newspaper
that show and tell
of saintly,
holy
images
in a bowl of jello
or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich
with the face of
Jesus mixed in for good measure.
So ....... am I right? It's an intriguing
passtime to
let your eyes unfocus
and daydream on
things you see
but aren't actually there.
To be continued .....

However, you can send me your "daydreams" and I'll post them in my blog as this rambling continues. Just click on COMMENTS and sign in as ANONYMOUS ....seems to work easier that way.
