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
