Clouds Got In Our Way!


Clouds got in our way, erasing the sunset last night.


They floated north like a great barge on the water, erasing the river.


But to the south a pink and golden cut reminded us that the sun was still lighting the clouds from above as it slipped, unseen, toward our horizon.

If tonight were clear we would enjoy the thinnest crescent moon, bright Venus and faint Mercury. But clouds are already in our way. Perhaps your sky is clear?

Author, illustrator of "The Yarn Animal Book", probably the only craft book with instructions for making such unique yarn animals as an orangutan, an ant eater, a llama and a star-nosed mole and "The Single Minded Prince, a fairy tale for all ages about a boy and a pirate captain who both misbehave. The books and a booklet series based on each different yarn craft topic covered in "The Yarn Animal Book" (pompoms and other really easy yarn crafts, knitting, crocheting, rya, needlepoint and embroidery), are available on Amazon and Kindle.
