a rope 
harnessed to a cloud
and a passing plane

we drew it on a graph
the long climb
to certainty

on the sky’s 
broad sheet, more clouds:
knotted grey mats,

white puffy skeins,
disintegrated pollen bursts,
all cluttered around

blank blue space
unable to agree
on the scene

we’re not 
the only ones
arguing about the weather

Inspired by LindaGHill’s SoCS prompt “rope” (and the photo above) but not strictly “stream of consciousness” because I edited it.
