Cloud Variations

Brilliant yellow sunlight
Pours down from a pale blue sky
Directly overhead.
Stark white puffs
Dot an azure eastern vista.
Towering black storm
Rises to the west
While rows of alternating
Off-white and mid-blue
March on either flank
With an occasional fluff
Rising above the ranks.

Thanks for the early returns. The intention is a simple word picture showing an unusual natural formation.

I have flown Cessna's for the better part of 14 years, and have looked out of my small cabin and seen what you are speaking of here. There aren't many people that can express such grandeur in so few words.

I think the flow of the poem itself had a rhyme and wouldn't change a thing. :)
