Water Vapor


There's a silence
When I view the clouds
That doesn't happen anytime else.
The rolling anvil-heads
And sky wisps
The cirrus
And the cumulonimbus
Bathing in the sun's light.
The sun burns at 9940
And yet the rays
Are this pale white yellow
Soft and still
And I lose myself
Looking at the great mounds of white and grey
Millions of pounds of water
Illuminated and bright
Because it is all impermanent;
So much presence, floating,
That won't be there if the wind
Blew quickly for an hour.
