ON THE CLOUDS ABOVE
I love clouds.
And I always ask for a window seat
when flying north, leaving Colombia.
The natives say there are seven different shades
of "Caribbean blue" in the warm coastal waters.
Turquoise to blue, then green,
with sunny shades in between . . .
with cloud shadows dancing underneath.
The show is always changing.
And this time,
two speed boats were racing home
dodging underneath the clouds.
(Hard to tell how fast or who won.)
One of the few remaining pleasures
of flying these days . . .
these Caribbean window views.
