Perseids

Clouds are silk but like women in swift eyes.
There may yet be an outburst of tear glands
By morning to fulfill the dry earth’s desires.

Our earth refuses to date a sky on our roof,
Under shreds of cotton clouds in a city sky.
Perseids may be out bursting in higher sky.

(On our failure to watch the Perseid meteors shower today on account of a cloudy night)
