Soup of clouds, or: Slip into fancies

A Shadorma

soup of clouds
spills shade on bushes,
splatters rocks;
legs slow to
sweet luxurious saunter ~
slip into fancies

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

  1. Love the word choice, flow, and use of alliteration in your poem, David. It all comes together beautifully. ๐Ÿ’œ
