Cloud and Clouds

Each one builds and passes

Sometimes there’s rain within

Wind provides them locomotion

But they never last.

Vaporous creatures

Pretty to look at

Shade casters

Changeable, untrue.


and Creators of Vistas

Bodies of questionable substance

Stick your hand through.

Stormy without reason

These temporary circles

have their season

For depositing cold hail and snow.

Players with light

Confusing the weather

Obscuring the seasoned pilot’s sight

wherever they go.

Too far away to touch

Not committed except to travel

it was nice to observe you for a while

But leaving now to let this all unravel.
