Dawn Daydream



POETRY TOW-TRUCK
gave us some similes to mix and match.

DAWN DAYDREAM

As bright as a peacock on the lawn,
And white as sugar in a dish,
The proud sun rose up at dawn
And, quiet as a rock, I made a wish.

OUT OF THE BLUE

Romantic, yet scientific, the illustration above,
Showing a phenomenon almost as strange as love!
Noctilucent ........there's a word to get one's head around!
It's applied to clouds not near us, but way above the ground.
These clouds are up so very high (at least fifty miles or more);
They're up where only imaginations can ever really soar.
In the daylight they're invisible, also at dead of night,
So it's rarely that we ever see this very unusual sight.
But just as dusk is falling, and the earth is in the shade,
The sunlight hits these special clouds, briefly, and then they fade.
They're still something of a mystery, but won't you feel so proud
When you can point up in the sky and say
'See that noctilucent cloud!'

Wishes are quiet as rocks, aren't they?
