7 April: A-to-Z Challenge

AI artwork, fractious cloud formation in watercolour and ink style.

F is for Fractus Clouds

Fractocumulus, a pretty breath
of storm clouds that stretch out
like broken sleep. It’s a tear away,
it’s a wind ringing church bells.

It’s white as rough water weather,
where blue is a gift to the sky.

For A-Z Challenge. Fractocumulus: A cumulus cloud presenting a ragged, shredded appearance, as if torn. Written for the A-to-Z Challenge. Declared theme for the challenge is Weather.

  1. I haven’t heard of fractocumulus before now. Very interesting. A stretched-out storm cloud sounds rather attractive., though not the broken sleep.

    1. It’s a storm cloud that looks like it’s pulled apart and broken, often with wispy edges.


  2. I don’t think I’ve ever seen clouds quite like those, but now I’m going to be on the lookout for them! I live in Tornado Alley, so our clouds are often quite angry!

    1. They look like they’ve been torn apart, wispy edges like cotton balls pulled apart.

  6. Fractocumulus
    What a great word, and what a great way to express it.

    Mind if I steal it?

    1. Fractocumulus is a meteorological term, so help yourself! 😂
