Clouds

 

The permanence of clouds – remembrance –

for what is past continues in the mind –

this afternoon I looked – a ghostly presence –

solid in the sky – a grace – defined

by its impermanence – I watched – expecting

it to move – it stayed – the wind was blowing

parallel to me – uncircumspect –

it gradually withdraws – the house below

impervious – the spiritual immune –

their passage through the air comparable

to schools of fish – a tapestry – attune –

an allegory – humanity – unable

to distinguish the invisible –

discontinuous – unbridgeable.
