A Poem by Cherrie Palmer

clouds
begin to grow.
Filling up the valley low.
The heavy sky can barely stand
and the sky above  looks like land.
A mad dash to shelter will come too late.
And the weatherman forgot to mention the rain.

Maybe if you are able to tell me what this says in a normal format I could understand the poem better? Thanks! -Kay

Love it Cherrie, creative shape poem that fits the theme to a tee and is both well written and amusing. One small point "come too late"?
