Cloud Fishing

Cloud Fishing

With some practice
you will be able to
drop a line into the sky
and wait

a cloud will come along
and give you a good tug
or a run for your money
you might throw it back
or skin it for dinner

If you need to beat yourself
with a reason to be there
you might think of a kite.

If it is painfully sunny or
you cannot otherwise
get out of the house
you may substitute
your own thoughts
for clouds.

A wonderful double for
white, gray, puffy, thick, thin,
screeching and sleety,
or snow full … whatever
you need your clouds to be,
they are simply there
fishing and catching you.
