Morning Clouds and Sun Sing Their Songs

Scarlet-orange clouds
painted their way
across an early morning sky.

I watched them
slowly turn,
like autumn leaves,
into a chorus of color.

I heard them singing…
Simon and Garfunkel’s song, Cloudy.
I laughed
at how out of tune
a couple clouds sounded,
especially those singing bass.

After all,
this is Saturday morning,
and there is no need
for thundering voices
to fill the sky.

The sky brightened suddenly,
as the sun jumped in
with its own song:
the Beatle’s Good Day Sunshine.

  1. i like watching the clouds but love the sunshine, too 🙂
    beautifully done!

  2. Life as a song
    a melody all day long
    filled with quiet moments
    and crescendos so strong

  3. I just heard The Beatles’ The Word yesterday:

    “It’s so fine, It’s sunshine
    It’s the word, Love”
