A word I stumbled upon in story research
Trying to find the right word for that sweet activity
Of lying in grass that smells oh-so-green
Fingers stretched across the belly of the earth
Or the belly full of joy, of possibility,
Dreaming things into the clouds' random shapes...
There isn't one.
But the Google search "what is it called when you look at clouds" shows this:
Pareidolia (n.) :
the tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful
image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern.
My mind is catalyzed to associations
Rorschach tests, famous tortillas,
Schizophrenia, apophenia, religion...whatever.
All just so many clouds.
