Sea of Clouds (poem)

This sea of clouds, far as you see,

Who knows what lies beneath?…

A quiet town, or winding stream,

A grove of mighty trees?…

Up here above, a world apart,

No way to really know…

At least until, the clouds depart,

Revealing the lands below.

I took these photos on Thursday when on a return flight home. As I gazed out the window at this solid blanket of clouds I thought of how far away and unknown the ground below was. Anything at all could be happening below and so long as the clouds remained, I would not know.

I hope you’re having a nice weekend!
