One magical
morning in Ellul
I saw two pale
clouds kissing.
Deep ultramarine
was engraved
between them like
a river meandering
between two giant
mountains in a picture
taken from the air,
then it narrowed

as they came closer
to each other
like the inspiration
of God's finger
in "the Creation"
in the Sistine Chapel.
In a moment of
grace they united:
one rain cloud
huge and black
