POEM: A Low Layer of Rushing Clouds [Prose Poem]

A vein of graphite gray clouds glide — low and fast — under a static white ceiling. No  patches of blue peek through, today. Oh, where are those fast blackened clouds sailing at such a clip? And are the high white clouds truly still, or does the contrast with these fast clouds hide some sluggish drift. Maybe the higher clouds are too uniform — stretching out to all horizons — for motion to be seen.

Is this low layer of rushing clouds some kind of smoke monster or a drunkard’s dragon? Seems too motivated to just be water vapor.

Gray Day Haiku


palm trees waving
under gray, stormy skies
delusion rocked

 

foggy city
bridge top corner juts
from river’s cloud

 

monochrome town
fog drained your varied hues,
what feats light works

 

cloudy mountain
layers of gray stay silent
keeping secrets

 

vodka, no ice
peering out a window
into nothing
