  • Lilting
  • Imaginary forms
  • Gliding
  • High above
  • Tree tops

O, it is pleasant, with a heart at ease,

Just after sunset, or by moonlight skies,

To make the shifting clouds be what you please,

Or let the easily persuaded eyes

Own each quaint likeness issuing from the mould

Of a friend's fancy.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

  8. six legged pig?

    ... or perhaps there's two pigs, with the slightly taller one standing just beyond the first?

  10. These clouds are amazing. I'm always trying too hard to see shapes and usually miss, but these are so incredibly obvious!

  11. Those are some fancy clouds. The shapes we usually pick out are much more ordinary and abstract.

  40. I absolutely adore clouds and I'll have to agree with Farmchick, the pig is my favourite! Sometimes (when it's not raining...) and the clouds are perfect and white and puffy I like to go out and take pictures of them. They really are relaxing to look at :)
