In rock-ribbed pools
and sheen of shore,
grey and white reflections
meld into ice-blue cirrus skies.
in a cumulus of sighs,
of crabs and shells,
busting bits of bone
and nimbus whales,
exploding into fins, teeth, tails
and sea clouds.

My poem for dVerse Poets Pub Quadrille, where we take any meaning of one word and transform it into 44 poetic words.
Today, I am the barkeeper, your humble host, and have asked you to write a poem of exactly 44 words (not counting your title), including the word cloud.
I have been inspired by two of my favourite singer songwriters, Joni Mitchell and Kate Bush, and the image of one of a group of paintings by a friend of mine, Norfolk artist, printer and community librarian Maria Pavledis, who you can find on http://mariapavledis.com/
