Photo Challenge Day 3 - Clouds

Clouds are hard to come by here today.  We've got snow, wind, and completely overcast skies.  I thought about walking down to the snowmobile trail to catch a cloud of snow dust, but it was only a thought.

So I was left with this -

Yep -- there it is -- my cloud.  Not sure what all I can do with it, but it's there.  I know it's a little hard to read   so you'll have to trust me on this.

If that doesn't excite you, here's a poem about a cloud that will surely bring much lovelier pictures to mind.

I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud

I wandered lonely as a cloud 
That floats on high o'er vales and hills, 
When all at once I saw a crowd, 
A host, of golden daffodils; 
Beside the lake, beneath the trees, 
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. 

Continuous as the stars that shine 
And twinkle on the milky way, 
They stretched in never-ending line 
Along the margin of a bay: 
Ten thousand saw I at a glance, 
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance. 

The waves beside them danced; but they 
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee: 
A poet could not but be gay, 
In such a jocund company: 
I gazed---and gazed---but little thought 
What wealth the show to me had brought: 

For oft, when on my couch I lie 
In vacant or in pensive mood, 
They flash upon that inward eye 
Which is the bliss of solitude; 
And then my heart with pleasure fills, 
And dances with the daffodils.

--William Wordsworth
