a cloud beneath the cross

it was only a cloud
a small white fluff
on a flight-path below star points
hardly seen
against the glare of city lights

it shaped and re-formed
as it drifted
somehow purposeful
across the sky
paused for a moment
gathered itself
took in the whole
of the southern cross
then moved on
