Cumulus, Gone But Not Forgotten

Cumulus, Gone But Not Forgotten

The cumulus had been shedding
for half an hour
when it finally exhales its last bit of self.

The cloud rememberer
lowers her binoculars,
also sighing.

This isn’t easy. But she is a professional.
She pencils the date and time
in her notebook.

  1. I love "the cloud rememberer." Wonderful poem. Wonderful image, too. Scary in context.
