Foggy heavy-gray teary-eyed low-hanging
snow-stuffed melancholy winter clouds
Impulsive wayward turbulent thick-swift-dark
tempestuous hail-angered storm clouds
Sprinkling lighthearted fanciful breeze-drifted
rainbow-nestled April-hued springtime clouds
Enormous white-fluffy fairydust-fringed
frolicsome sun-illumed carefree summer clouds
Thunderous intense restless rain-soaked
lightning-streaked July-dyed monsoon clouds
Azure-skylit sunglow-slanted edge-gleaming
white-silver billowy contemplative autumn clouds
Vivid vibrant blissful dawn-lit joy-beamed
daybreak-florid sunrise-tinted morning clouds
Aimless airy midday-lazy wandering listless
mountaintop-floating leisurely afternoon clouds
Amber-ablaze day’s-end-pink ephemeral-amethyst
evening-welcome smoky-embered sunset clouds
Lambent star-flanked luminous moon-halo’d
glowing shadow-painted skygazers’ night clouds
