sky writing

Image: Escher, Puddle 1952

the sky was gorgeous today
did you see it?
omg, it was
amazing

i struggled to name it
but ended up slack jawed
stuck in my tracks
wordslayed

thoughts tangled like kite strings
in Charlie Brown treetops
ARRGH! 
so frustrating

and all i could think of
were well trodden verses
balding adjectives
and mucky cliches

so no river of beauty today
from this dammed up poet
just a muddle of
thud

oh well
you had to be there,
my dears
cuz the sky was gorgeous today
