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.

Life Is...
by shelby, age 14, Texas (USA)

The things unseen are but a myth
for all things seen are gold
To thank for life and open sky
Only wonders are told
Life is busy, make it last
for all things pass you by
No regrets and live life fast
Look up at open sky
