Clouds of Haleakala


Standing in the dark in the middle of a rain cloud
sideways rain at ten-thousand feet slapping my face

Waiting, waiting for sunrise
Angry visitors give up, go home, curse the clouds

We wait, are rewarded with beauty of sparkling rays
streaming  God’s glory


I decided to write a second more positive Quadrille for dVerse Poets Pub today. The word to include is cloud, which made me think of being in the midst of a cloud waiting for sunrise on Mt. Haleakala, Maui.

  2. There are those moments both in creation and in Spirit when God just seems to break through and we recognize him even more because of what was absent. Too bad for those who don’t have the patience to wait.

    Why would someone climb all that way to be angry at the clouds?
