Cloud Messengers

My friend ,Sylvia Kirkwood, posts great pictures of skies as part of the Sky Watch Friday. Occasionally , they lend themselves to some interesting interpretations (of political happenings ), particularly, something like the fuss being currently made over Pres Obama's religion and background... (the interpretation coming from someone from a country which almost specializes in the diversity of religions,languages, colors, and cultural customs).

President Obama is scheduled to come to India on a State visit this year .

Some dark,
some light,
many black and white,
some
all mixed up and grey;
The blue
of a peaceful sky
bears all these
and more.

Occasionally,
an ill wind,
passes by
snidely nudging
them
about where
they come from.

And the Sun,
the
only shining constant
ducks
through a cloud,
winks at another one,
saying,
so many countries,
so many seas,
so many rivers,
so much evaporation,
thanks to me.....

Regardless of
what religion
and color the water was,
they
are just
great big lumps
of pure
altruistic
water vapour
bringing
shade, and rain
as they wander and stop
across countries,
in their journey through life ......
