November’s Opening Night

November calendar with scattered leaves on it

On a red carpet

Tossing leaves of welcome

November swept in

As the barren trees shivered

And the crescent moon vanished

Happy Cloud

Cloud with a happy face--Senryu poem
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2015

This little cloud was hovering over Memphis Airport the day we landed there.
While we were waiting for the Hotel Shuttle to pick us up I happened to look up at the sky and saw only this one cloud and snapped a picture. Just yesterday I was going thru my pictures and I noticed the cloud has a happy face!
Do you see the two eyes and smiling mouth?  This is not Photoshopped!
We had a Happy Cloud welcoming us to Memphis! 🙂
