Jane Dougherty Writes

In response to the photos, day 6 of Paul Brookes’ what shapes can you see in the clouds challenge.


a shaft of sunlight
streams in golden glory,

dust mote-floating, touching
the shadowed fields below
with the echoing voices of infinity.

In pale imitation, we scrawl our names
in exhaust from screaming engines
across the purity, scratch the coping

of the sky with fingernails,
until the white stuffing bursts,
disperses, sea foam.
