…of a cloud

the sound of a cloud
is a lash
of the wind

singing treble
in high registers

the sound of a cloud
is three birds
frantic

fleeing the storm
that boils
close behind

the sound
of a cloud
is a rain ………………………..’…….”………d

howling
the long way down

a descent of raindrops

and the sound of a cloud
is the swirl
and swirl
of vapour
into grey
