clouds before me

Puffs of vapor
we are
before I breathed
they moved and changed.

Before I knew to look up
they gazed down
restored the earth
and human souls.

Before I found images
they shifted and blurred
reflecting sunlight
and thoughts.

Puffs of vapor
to us, as are we to gods
but I know so little
of the truth
of clouds.
