Poetry and Pictures - Weather

This painting of The Grand Canal, Venice by British artist Joseph Mallord William Turner shows clouds in the sky above the canal and city that are elongate ripples of white. This is a type of altocumulus cloud sometimes called a mackerel sky because it is like the markings of a mackerel.

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

Freedom is all I bear to have.
Bright blue skies without a mask.
You Only Live Once,so live it right.
Love is patience,love is kind.
Freedom to learn and strive.
Meet your goals,and multiply.
The sky has interesting faces.
So use your freedom right,and you'll go places
