In a sky, like preternatural birds ,
Lay soft white clouds, full of rain
Drops for red roses by a lakeside
Lying in wait for somebody ‘s car
Boot to pick up so as to lie in wait
With the wet clothes on balconies.
The white clouds are wet clothes
Hung by the sky -gods for drying.
As they drip-drop they turn rain
Drops on lake roses lying in wait
For a car to pick up, to lie in wait
On balconies with drying clothes.
Meanwhile , soft white clouds will
Turn temporary cat’s eyes peering
Down into our camera’s pure view
To lie in wait permanently in eyes.
