In Clouds I See, With Imagination Of Course  




In clouds up high, I see
      certain shapes up there,
Like feathery forms to me,
      afloat on currents of air...

To my eye of blue,
      cast upon the sky,
I see their whitened hue;
      And unnoted, they pass not by...
      
With imagination mine,
      from what I see there wrought,
I may with them, entwine
      to higher things in thought:

Could some
       be from celestial height?
And some 
       be lost from angel flight?      

Do angels aloft
      who guard and illume...
Do they at times, not oft,
      lose a plume?


Oh I know,
      they're spirits so,
And for something to compare
      are thinner than thinnest air...

But still,
      if you will,
Untether your mind
      and see if you,
      a feather may find,
           up in the sky of blue...

And as I muse,
       to my way of thinking,
They'd have us use
       a feather of theirs,
As a quill, for inking
       in our affairs...

For us to write
      on our scrolls of  life,
      neither sin nor strife,
But deeds with heaven in
sight,
      that leadeth to, eternal Light...  John Riedell



 A cloud turned to show it better

These clouds present interesting natural formations.  It also happens, that with imagination, one might see within the formations the suggestion of a scene from angelic history recounted in Apocalypse 12.  Toward the top, visualize a person with upstretched arms, and down and to the left, a creature with a howling face, being cast down.

Note, the suggested shape of a wing, bent as if in flight, above the sunset.  The bottom of it is formed by streaks below the orange spot.
