Clouds

  • ... clouds were piled up like heads of cauliflower in a roadside stand.

  • The clouds hung above the mountains like puffs of white smoke left in the wake of a giant old-fashioned choo-choo train.

  • Spring and autumn are inconsiderable events in a landscape compared with the shadows of a cloud.

  • The cloud controls the light ... It is the cloud that, holding the sun's rays in a sheaf as a giant holds a handful of spears, strikes the horizon, touches the extreme edge with a delicate revelation of light, or suddenly puts it out and makes the foreground shine.

  • We talk of sunshine and moonshine, but not of cloud-shine, which is yet one of the illuminations of our skies. A shining cloud is one of the most majestic of all secondary lights.

  • Overhead some white puffed clouds sped, and threw their blue shadows up the leafy stumps where the hops grew, and threw the shadows down the stumps' other sides and into the woods fast as snakes.

  • Through the tall window by her cot she saw two blue shadows slide down Chuckanut Ridge quick as otters, but she could not see the clouds that made them.

  • Above the village a round and fat white cloud sat like a benign halo while, all about, the sky was blue.

  • Though outwardly a gloomy shroud, / The inner half of every cloud / Is bright and shining: / I therefore turn my clouds about, / And always wear them inside out / To show the lining.
