Pigeon Soft Cooing Summer Sky
I see pretty cloud in the sky
They are grey, mauve, cream, and peach.
No not a shimmery sunset in the sky.
It is a clouded afternoon
Not a sunset with bright sky
But subtle with colours of a pigeon
Wind barely stirs broad waves in the sky
Barely a breath on the ground
Pigeon soft cooing summer sky
No rains today though I wonder why
Gentle day with a gentle sky
Not clear, but not storm
Everyone sees a grey summer sky
Worry about the beach or picnic
Gentle calm from this sky
Gentle in the afternoon calm
Calming grey summer sky
Like a blanket far up high
Higher than mountains this sky
Watching us today

I wrote this poem looking at a cloud covered sky on a summer's afternoon. I've also placed this on a picture I took of this sky.
