    How do you describe a cloud picture to a blind person




    One day many years ago I was lying on a blanket in the park staring up into the sky.  It was one of those glorious days; bright blue skies full of active puffy clouds.  I thought how could you explain to someone who has never seen a cloud the pictures forming above. I then wrote the following. 


    As I look into the heavens the sky is filled with beautiful white puffy clouds
    They glide through the air
    Each one passing through another
    Each mixture creating a new image in the sky
    Each image is a picture of our own imagination
    I wonder can you imagine something you’ve never seen

    I really really like the concept of this poem. I had a blind friend in school whom i used to describe how things looked to him the best i could. This I would have used to describe clouds. Great job.

    Very nice. makes you ponder how would you. I liked the line each image is a picture of our own imagination; so true.

    This is very interesting! I would have to say, yeah...I think you can...don't you? Nice imagination.

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
