Language of the heavens

Cloud gazing, eyes skyward
Take time to watch the clouds in their many manifestations.
From mere wisps swept wide by artists in the sky,
to cotton wool masses pregnant with water yearning earthward.

Are they mere atmospheric decorations?
Something to be transformed into dragons and horses
fleeing across time and space:
an exercise for the imaginative mind?

Or are they ever shifting meteorological messages?
Filled with import for our daily pottering
even their absence conveying information
Decipherable by those still wise in the ways of the earth.

Cloud gazing, eyes skyward
Heart and mind earth-wide,
filling with the knowledge of life in its unfolding.
