A lone cloud appeared and gave rise to haiku thoughts. What do you see?

Cloudface (haiku thoughts)

Stranger in the sky
Born from a whim of the wind
Ephemeral mist

I see the face in this photo of clouds. In flying above the clouds, they are just mist. Good title for this photo.....
Reviewed by Lena Kovadlo 6/25/2013
I absolutely love your line "stranger in the sky"...

Upon staring at the image you've presented I seem to make out a face - eyes, nose, beard...

Now, you've showcased four different versions of the clouds. Is there a significance to that or were you just playing around with different photoshop effects?

I see a pirate. He's smiling because you found him handsome enough to take his picture! So few find his scraggly, bearded face handsome...he's quite pleased. Very playful of you to ask! Your skillful wording allows the reader to explore their imagination. Love the poem & the pictures! :)Sheila

Wow! Cool :). Just read that you're being tracked by 82 people---probably more than most of the poets listed. It's super that you still like my opinion ... even though you obviously have a stupendous fan club.
Happy holidays, dear Regis.
What do I see? In the upper right corner--looking straight at it--I see a face.
Reviewed by Gloria Buono Daly 12/15/2005
I see two eyes, a nose, a small mouth (silence is golden), and many moods. This is so beautiful and inspiring. Just love your photo and your Haiku, "Cloudface." (Brings back memories of my childhood when I would play and describe images in the sky from clouds. thanks for the magic.)

Fantastic ku Regis! Wow that photo gives rise to remembering all those who see faces and believe they are holy! It really does look like one of the pictures I've seen of Jesus taken in the Shroud of was distorted,and showed how He had been beaten etc...strange isn't it, what the mind can conceive in a cloud, from preconceived images?

My imagination goes wild looking at this pic...I might be wrong but that is what i see my friend!!

The Goddess is tossing you down the runes. I see the female Divinity in the picture. She has appeared in your favor for the festival of Ferefaria, the festival of the wilderness. Wicca is so knowledgable in nature and her workings so profound that it is used to communicate with the elements to bring about some desired change. Magical Haiku, Reg.
