The following is by Writers in the Grove member, Patti Bond.
When I look out my window
I see clouds racing by.
Where do they go?
Are the clouds circling the globe or
simply relocating themselves?
In the early morning there is a patch of blue sky,
bringing me a sense of hope
that it will be a nice day.
Five minutes later, I see dark, gloomy clouds.
How can clouds change so quickly?
Giving me the false hope
it will be a nice day.
At moment’s notice there is a terrific downpour,
or a jaw-dropping snowstorm of ten inches or more.
What an amazing thing sky!

We were directed to the coffee room, a room of fine proportions, a room of tightly shut windows and an odor of stale food. We had some excellent mutton, large slabs of water cabbage, and some dispirited potatoes. Some rather tasteless stewed fruit and custard followed. After Gorgonzola and biscuits the waiter brought us some doubtful fluid called coffee.
Write a paragraph using the details that defines the scene or a character.
