a scatter of clouds

a a scatter of
small white clouds
on the horizon,
white,
the whitest clouds
I�ve ever seen,
white,
like little flags
against the blue
sky,
white flags,
like the sky
is surrendering
to the earth,
the eternal war
of earth against sky,
heaven against earth,
concluded,
won by the base
elements
of earth,
the grass
and trees,
oceans
and rivers,
animals
large and small,
earthworms
burrowing in the dirt
and humankind,
self-proclaimed
master
of all that won
and the birds,
with their split
loyalties
circling
in confusion
