Weekly Photo Challenge: Variations (on Clouds)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Variations (on Clouds)

In response to WP Weekly Photo Challenge: Variations.

Ben Huberman of WordPress says variations, thinking of music (and cheese). I hear variations, and think of poetry (and permutations). Poetry shall be the easier of the two.

World is crazier and more of it than we think,
Incorrigibly plural. I peel and portion
A tangerine and spit the pips and feel
The drunkenness of things being various.
—Louis MacNeice

I don’t entirely share the poet’s fascination (bordering on intoxication) but the drunkenness of things being various stuck with me for reasons unknown and unimportant.

Also, it’s clear that the poet is a poet: he can’t even eat a tangerine! Normal people don’t spit the pips but swallow. It’s easier that way. And smart people don’t buy tangerines with pips.

Anyway, here’s a picture of variations on clouds.

  1. I like your pic of clouds–seemingly endless variations. This month’s variations here have been cloudless days with intense blue skies. In the film “Field of Dreams” the baseball player talks about a sky so blue it hurts your eyes to look at it. Yep, that kind of sky.


    1. It’s been long since the sky was so blue it hurt one’s eyes: it’s the middle of winter here, and grey is the colour. This photo is from autumn when the sky was still gorgeous. Clouds are such a curious thing, the patterns they form and the different shapes they take…
