Speaking of Clouds


You are not the cirrus
wispy ice crystals
highest in the heavens
oblivious to earthly shadows and whispers

nsYou eschew the nimbostratus
shielding the heavens
with a gray blanket of great sadness
that darkens earthen hopes and dreams


Neither are you the haughty cumulus
defending heaven’s gate with
threatening storms and floods
to earth oceans, forests and prairies


No, I fancy you the stratocumulus
in the dawn of twilight surrender
infusing color and promise
and greeting all creatures with renewal and hope

For Richard
