The Cloud Princess

A new custom-made book from shop no. 2.

She sits on her stool of delicate frozen dew.

Looking after the Earth's mountains and plains from high up on her perch, she works at her loom. She takes water, air, and light, teases them and cards them to form

dewdrops, warp and weft from which she creates yards and yards of her beautiful fabric--we call these cumulus, stratus, cirrus, and nimbus.

Children spend hours staring at her, begging her to stay, but she is there only long enough to swathe the skies in whites and greys so that soon it rains. The earth is fed.

Then Charlene, the Girl in the Clouds, waves goodbye, rides the winds, and is on her way.

Very beautiful. I have admired your work for some time and it just seems to keep getting better and better.
I did not see "Cloud Princess" in the shop. If it is not yet sold I would very much like to buy it.
