a glimpse of gladness

above the clouds

with clouds above us

a roller coaster ride as

air unsettled

seeks to find its way

Through gaps and gusts

we wander ever eastward

under no illusion

of our place in

the vast complexities of

time and space


The blanket opens,

here and there

suggesting the

unsettled nature

of the systems holding us

accountable (aeronautically…)

this calm belies reality –

yet here, a road – a farm

a field –

then gone again

a victim of

capricious clouds and vagrant wind

Nov 2010 – Ottawa to Halifax
