September clouds

Waiting for the rain to drown
trees and fields in waterspout
I look rather up than down
and know what those clouds are about.

A sudden thunderstorm might blow
the wind hard in reverse direction
and thereby obviously show
unpredicted predilection.

Better for us to find a room
with walls around and a firm roof,
so that the clouds that above loom
can’t harm us ’cause we’re weatherproof.
