From the Clouds

I’ve seen a dragon in the clouds

and a big cat

a leopard


and a tea table

set for tea.

Some say they’ve seen Christ

or Mohamed,

or fairy kings and queens.

They have all stayed a while,

my shapes in the cloud.

None have left.

Not until now.


when the leopard has grown so large 

and so solid looking he no longer belongs there.

His teeth are not barred yet

so I don’t feel afraid

just dreamy


all at sea

with wonder

and moonshine.
