52 Cleveland Haiku (36)

In the gap between clouds,
one star;
your touch on my arm

--Geoffrey A. Landis

I though I'd have to photoshop the picture, but somewhat to my surprise, the camera actually captured the star between the clouds.
Of course, the bright "star" in the east is actually Jupiter, but how literal do you really want a haiku to be?
The bright patch in the clouds is the moon.

From my point of view, Jupiter is a star. On the other hand, is photoshop ever literal?

Did anyone else see the "face" in the clouds above the star? (My wife caught this.) Looks more like a cat than Jesus!

Yes, if you turn it sideways, it's very clearly a cat!
