Floating, floating, floating

Baby cloud

I’ve always been a cloud fan, and my photo gallery is full of cloud pictures. This one is a favorite, because it reminds me of how fast time flies. It was about ten o’clock in the morning when this baby cloud popped up. One moment there was all blue sky and the next, there it was.

But that was just the beginning. The little cloud blossomed exponentially over the next two hours. A little after noon, it turned heavy and dark, and drenched us with rain. And a half-hour later, it vanished, and the sky was blue again. Magic, right in front of me.

Life is like that for us, too. One minute we’re a baby cloud and the next, we’ve disappeared and all is blue sky again. In the grand scheme of things, we are very temporary!

I owned the world that hour as I rode over it,
free of the earth, free of the mountains,
free of the clouds, but how inseparately bound to it.

    Some of the most spectacular clouds waft over our omni-blue skies in New Mexico. We appreciate them!

      I agree. I’ve lived in Las Cruces and Albuquerque, both, and the clouds are spectacular!

    I look forward to your blog posts because of thoughts like temporary clouds and our temporary lives and the cool quotes you find to go with them.

      Quotes are a hobby of mine, as is photography. We have some pretty wise ancestors (and contemporaries!)
