Daydreaming – A Quadrille

Daydreaming

Cumulus clouds congregating
High in the blue sky
Forming fluffy puffs of cotton
Constantly moving, changing shape
Abraham Lincoln holds a sheep
While the dog’s head grows in size
Eventually becoming a whale
Daydreaming in the sun’s warmth
Letting the mind be curiously creative

    Scientific fact: If you stare at them long enough, your gaze melts them..

    I used to do this when I was a child. How creative this can be, while daydreaming in the sun’s warmth.

    Love your Lincoln cloud. The kids and I play “what do you see” frequently and I enjoy where there minds lead them.

      Thank you! My Abraham Lincoln and sheep came from clouds I saw earlier that day. When I picked the photo for the post the first thing that became visible was the Labrador Retriever head and I had to change the quadrille slightly to include a dog. It was so clear 🤣

        Amazing. Love a good Lincoln sighting. 😉

    ‘Abraham Lincoln holds a sheep’ 🤣we are keen cloud-watchers in our household. My son saw George Washington the other day!

    I love this, because I do exactly that, speaks my language.

    Cloud-gazing is one of my favorite pastimes …. your quadrille describes it perfectly.

  11. June 1, 2021 at 3:33 pm

    I have not been cloud gazing since I was a kid… I need to do that again.
