>And all that – #1066


I am the daughter of Earth and Water,
       And the nursling of the Sky;
I piss through the pores of the ocean and shores;
       I change, but I cannot die.
For after the rain when with never a stain
       The pavilion of Heaven is bare,
And the winds and sunbeams with their convex gleams
       Build up the blue dome of air,
I silently laugh at my own cenotaph,
       And out of the caverns of rain,
Like a child from the womb, like a ghost from the tomb,
       I arise and unbuild it again.
Percy Bysshe Shelley, “The Cloud”
According to “The Cloudspotter’s Guide”, an official publication of The Cloud Appreciation Society (Credo: We believe that clouds are unjustly maligned and that life would be immeasurably poorer without them…), these white fluffy things are Cirrocumulus stratiformus undulatus. Aka as a mackerel sky
A pleasant distraction from the flights of stairs to be negotiated up to the Eisgrubweg..
