"C"for "Cloud" ABC -Wednesday round 2
Arnold lobel wrote a tale in which a young mouse sees funny or stranges chapes in a cloudy sky...
(Could you tell me if you see somethig else than white clouds in this photo ??)
Baudelaire, a famous poet, praises the beauty of clouds which make him dream and bring to him some freedom:"J'aime les nuages, les merveilleux nuages..."
Cumulus, cirrus, cumulo nimbus have so fantastic shapes !
Don't you imagine in this blue sky a marble God's bust?
Examine this picture:
Fantasy?No reality, of course!A
God seen by a lunatic or a poet? No, a mere statue created by one of the sculptors of Cerisy-la -Forêt!
However, its colour and material look like clouds!
In the square of Trouville (Calvados, France) the statue of Gustave Flaubert illustrates this idiomatic expression:
"to have one's head in the clouds"
