Cloud Memories

New light shines

in the blue sky

No confines

No clouds that cry

 

But soon they come

Unknown where from

Beginning the storm

Gathering in alarm

 

Clouds grow and topple

Building and swirling

Their ink blots the sun

And scribbles across the sky

 

Growing, brewing

Brewing, growing

 

Expanding beyond horizons

Massive, laden

Their essence floods

The earth below them

Unaware of what it is

 

They are without plight

But they have forgotten

The new day’s light

And they would have gotten

 

The warning sooner

Before they too

Though they grew like a tumor

Would disappear out of the blue.
