I'd have to be really quick
to describe clouds -
a split second's enough
for them to start being something else..
Their trademark:
they don't repeat a single
shape, shade, pose, arrangement..
Unburdened by memory of any kind,
they float easily over the facts.
What on earth could they bear witness to?
They scatter whenever something happens.
Compared to clouds,
life rests on solid ground,
practically permanent, almost eternal.
Next to clouds
Even a stone seems like a brother,
Someone you can trust,
while they’re just distant, flighty cousins.
Let people exist if they want,
and then die, on ofter another,
clouds simply don’t care
what they’re up to
down there.
And so their haughty fleet
criuses smoothly over your whole life
and mine, still incomplete.
They aren’t obliged to vanish when we’re gone
They dont have to be seen while sailing on.
