A TONGUE OF CLOUD.
...Sounds a little gross, doesn't it?
But it looks powerful, and water-full,
Somehow taking up more sky than expected.
And it seems heavy.
It is, of course. It's ready to shower.
Which a tongue doesn't do, so the image breaks down.
BUT IT WAS APT UNTIL THEN.
...not that you feel poetic as you flee the downpour.
