Cloud Watching with Grandpa

Side by side,

While we lay on the grass,

Grandpa and I

Watched the animals pass.

First came a dog

With a lop-sided ear,

Being chased by a tiger,

Or maybe a deer.

They then got all jumbled,

Twisted cloud-shapes galore;

Grandpa said he saw Bigfoot.

I wasn’t quite sure.

We both saw a hawk

Fluff his wings in the sky.

It’s nice when we cloud watch,

Just Grandpa and I.
