Poetry and Pictures - Weather

In the mid-1850s, American artist George Inness was hired by a railroad company to create paintings that showed the railroad’s growth. This picture, called The Lackawanna Valley, shows the railroad in the wilderness of Scranton, PA and it also includes a low uniform layer of stratus clouds.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But just what words?

We'd like to invite you to submit your own poem about this month's featured Weather image. Be as creative and expressive as you can! And check back next month to write another wonderful poem about a weather image.

May
by Sally, age 67, England

May,
wearing wedding white,
and light,
scatters her confetti
petaled blossom
into summers
bright ways and wanderings,
squandering her days
lazily in grassy sunshine,
passing short time.
