The rain clouds
not the big thunderous kind,
but the type among the stratus,
the ones you barely notice
that arrive and leave by dispersing.
People see them and they do not suppose
that they should leave just by crying,
they are usually alone in bright places
being unthought of by those walking below.
But if they cry they'll disappear
and no one will ever have known.
