Cloud Watching, by Russell Conover

Jimmy, seven years old, lay on his back in a field watching the clouds. He gazed up and saw a cloud form a dog. Another one created a fish, and a third became a lion.

“So, what do you think, Jimmy? Which one’s your favorite?”

He sat up, startled. No one was within eyesight. He stared at the clouds, and his jaw dropped when he saw the dog wink.

“This isn’t a dream, Jimmy. We’re your new animal friends from the sky!”

He gurgled unintelligible speech, sure he’d gone mad. But, at least he had cool new companions!
