When the Sky Explodes in Glorious Colour

Why do people seem to desire clear skies? Oh yes, there is something nice about that unbroken blue with no punctuation other than the blazing eye of Sol, but that skyscape becomes so much more when there is a cloud or two (or two-hundred) to give the sky definition and contour.

dragons bask on rocks
underneath the blazing sun –
but fly above clouds

  4. I loved the way you arrived at the haiku….what a vibrant picture…. just loved it for the ecstasy like feeling it brought. …
