“layers of clouds”

Written for:  The Twiglets #278 - layers of clouds

thickening clouds 
fill the sky
in layers of warning

How would I feel
to wrap myself in
a pillow-cloud coat.

blue sky drifters
catch her eye in late afternoon
layers of clouds

          There was a young man from St. Cloud
          who was known for talking too loud.
                 He met a new girl
          thought he'd give her a whirl
    She whispered, 'Mister, you're blowing my eardrums out.'

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
