Ancient cistern full

Huge worn stone lid removed --- dragged to one side - centuries ago, and not moved since --- nestled in grassy pasture land; cistern filled - w/ cool rippling water - brilliant and overflowing: big open sky above, azure, brighter, deepest: one last dark cloud dejectedly drifts away.
