The Quilted Sky

Poem Commentary

A love of unusual and beautiful cloudy sky's fueled this specific poetic observation.

The Quilted Sky


A warm white woolen blanket

Overhead against the sky,

Or cotton textured fallen snow

Upon plains stretching wide,

This soft acoustic tapestry

Of white with shades of grey,

That move along so seamlessly

Backlit by break of day,

 

Sweeping south so slowly

Imperceptibly perceived,

Except where melds earths comforter

With sky blues wispy weave.

So nigh it seems to reach the sky

And touch this fluffy sight,

And pull it down and wrap around

A quilt delight in white,

 

And warm against this winter chill

That steals its way down south,

In crisp dry temperatures that show

Our breath exhaust from mouth,

But alas this scene above

Is earths insulating wrap

So we’ll rely on overcoats

With matching woolen cap.

Nice picture, Whiskers. Can almost feel the cold air surrounding me.

Thank you Sherlock, and who better to understand these beautiful clouds than one like yourself who has pierced them asunder when skydiving, punching holes in the clouds. Blessings, Whiskers

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
