Ghost clouds

The sky is entirely clear and sunny

and quite summer like at first sight

but if you looked closely at the west

you’d see beyond the dazzling light of the sun

the shadows of huge ghost clouds


Is it the sunny sky or the ghost clouds that are more real, more palpable

right now, your skin would undoubtedly choose the sun to follow

but two days from now when the sky has become overcast and the rain started pouring

the clouds will be much more present than the sun in your clothes mind at least


What about the ghost clouds of your spirit, the ones that have always, always obscured the horizon at the west

do you sometimes think of them, or are you so focused on the sun and the blue sky you forget them

how many days, how many weeks, how many months, how many years

will it take before your attention turns to the ghost clouds that are ghosts no longer
