Poetry and Pictures - Weather

Paintings by French artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) are often like snapshots of real life. In this painting of Le Pont des Arts in Paris, France there appears to be two cloud types in the sky: mid-level altocumulus clouds and lower stratocumulus clouds with an elongate shape.

Thin clouds
by caleb, age 13, Norrh caolina

the thin clouds are the most beautiful.
you're able to see the blue sky with the sun in the background.
After all the sky is the beautiful thing in all of mankind.
if people saw all of the mixed clouds with the all life.
