SkyWatch ~ 38 I've Looked at Clouds from Both Sides Now...

The clouds came up
in a great big band



they filled the sky
and swamped the land



and as the rain began to fall
we saw the sweetest sight of all!



They are worth enlarging...

Thanks to Klaus and the Sky Watch Team we're still
enjoying this terrific meme.

  7. Why do we get so excited about rainbows, Arija, I wonder. Is it their beauty, their fantastic colours or is it the promise they bring of sunshine to come.

    I am sorry.

  20. Wonderful shots and now I'm singing, I've looked clouds from both sides now from up and down . . . It is funny how whenever a blogger mentions a song lyric in a post or title I can't stop singing it. Happy skywatching.
