Nuages--By J. T. Milford--United States


An adagio of misty whites
Drifting silently below the summer blue
Across a wide expansive sky
From horizon to zenith
Then slowly floating away

Carrying my swirling dreams
Of argent swans bears
Ships sailing
Far over lakes marshes
Checkered countryside

Their earth shadows following
In harmony with clear light

Later in the light slanted afternoon
The marching clouds silently recede
Only to leave a burning sun fall
A cumulus of dreams

J. T. Milford is a retired CPA who has just completed his first book of poetry.
