Watching the Cloudy Sky


When at leisure,

watching the cloudy sky

is such a pleasure!

Isn’t it amazing? 

Clouds, when in lighter mood,

love to flaunt 

their artistic talent. 

The entire blue canvas 

becomes virtually, 

a vast picture gallery… exhibition

displaying exquisite sketches

of awesome clouds.

Hey, if you are a connoisseur,

hurry up, don’t waste a single moment

‘cause the paintings

are as transient as

the objects they portray. 

They might change form,

colour and location

the very next moment.

Or who knows,

could even flee the canvas, vanish…

gone with the wind,  

leaving you behind to regret,

at leaisure…sans pleasure!
