“The sky is low, the clouds are mean”

Slide Content

The slide presents a quote by Emily Dickinson, "The sky is low, the clouds are mean," which metaphorically reflects her perception of a moment, possibly illustrating a mood or a setting that conveys a sense of oppression or brooding. This line from a well-known poet could be used to set a tone or theme, perhaps within a literary or philosophical context, or to juxtapose or highlight concepts within a presentation, especially those relating to mood, environment, or emotional states.

Graphical Look

  • Background image depicting a person sitting on a rocky outcrop, overlooking a cloud-covered landscape.
  • Sky and clouds visibly dominate the upper portion of the image, with gentle transitions from the colors of dawn or dusk.
  • A blue, cloud-shaped doodle frames the quote, with sketchy outlines suggesting a casual, creative touch.
  • The quote itself is in white serif font, making it stand out against the blue doodle background.
  • The author's name, 'Emily Dickinson,' is presented in a smaller font size below the quote, providing clear attribution.

The overall look of the slide balances a strong photographic background with a creative and informal overlay that holds the literary quote. It successfully melds the visual impact of nature with the thoughtful presentation of poetry.

Use Cases

  • Opening slide for presentations aiming to set a contemplative or introspective mood.
  • Part of a series in a motivational or inspirational talk, where various quotes are used to underscore different points.
  • A creative interjection in a workshop or educational setting, prompting discussions around literature, poetry, or metaphorical thinking.
  • A backdrop for breaks or transitions between sections within a seminar that deals with environmental, philosophical, or emotional topics.
