high buildings

towers of cloud
in the autumn rain

towers of cloud is a great image. It showed me the clouds but also the urban skyline - emphasising its ephemeral quality and, perhaps the way in which the works/existence of man are subjugated by the weather, the seasons.

Great reading, Floots. The toughest part of writing this was getting the first line right. Your comment about the skyline is just what I was going for, and that I was afraid I couldn't get.

Beautiful! I agree that the skyline suggestion makes this work really well. And thanks for adding my blog to your links section. I'll return the favor.

Thanks, Kami. For some reason, this one means a lot to me personally, and I'm delighted that it works for you.
