OctPoWriMo: When I was Young

Thus begins OctPoWriMo 2015. Today's prompt is all about cloud and anything that clouds can represent in our lives. Have you ever cloud gazed? How do clouds make you feel? Memories of clouds? There's a lot to work with. As is usual there are a couple of suggestions for prompts related to clouds.

If I do a short form for my prompt I feel I do a disservice to my readers, Dear Readers. So, I am giving you 2 for 1. First an acrostic poem that uses the letters in the word CLOUD, each letter starts a new sentence. And then for dessert, a haiku.

Poetry Prompt: Acrostic poem and a Haiku
From MorgueFile
When I was Young, (I Would Cloud Gaze)

Clearly the skies are
Lazy as they stretch 
Out and across and
Under the Sapphire Blues
Daring my imagination to
See the endless possibilities

Cloud Dreams

Little floating puffs
dancing along stray breezes--
Secret lives of clouds.

If you are interested go and check out the my fellow poets at OctPoWriMo.


  1. I wonder what those secret lives might hold? Nice!
