From the vantage point of sky
clouds silently glide by
forming as they go
impressions of the ground.

And from a distance they can see
the seemingly haphazard
connecting lines and circles
that join, break, join again.

But clouds are not perturbed;
they know of man’s ignorance
and how the haze of cause/effect
hangs o’er all living things.

So if on ground the cause unknown
why suffers so the one I know
the effect of what glides quietly by
like clouds in our blue sky?

Ignorant, I’m ignorant, but who can teach
what they don’t know
except, except, of course, the one
I never ere can know!
