The Dordogne Sky

The  Sky  

The white clouds are held fast
by invisible threads
for they are cold and lonely
they rarely talk amongst themselves

they juggle for position
yet they seldom touch

“what of that”

there's not a cloud in the sky
that looks out of place

I watch as their cauliflower heads burst
into a time lapse slow motion
yet the invisible thermal plumes 
hold their bases quite  flat

never did I see such a sight so pure
I scrutinise  the sky 
for the smallest imperfections
but there are none 

I pull away in first
leaving behind 
a trail of carbon

a comet's tail of
black particulates
and nitrogen oxides

I swerve and give the lorry driver 
coming the other way “the finger”
