The cloud’s hair

Which can be brushed out long and fine
to lie across a pillow
or bunched and scrunched into an angry
knot of rain before it is undone, 
when long hanks of it hang
over the horizon like curtains,
the whole sky shaking 
its beautiful dense head.

From In the Land of Giants. 

Why not try...
  • describing the sky and the clouds. 
  • answering the question: What sort of personality do they have today?
