Reflections II
By John Cannon

There are
clouds

so delicate
so transparent

you donít
notice them,

no solid form
to draw your eye.

The sky just looks
a little lighter,

a pastel
instead of deep blue

until,

at the very last moment
before the sun is gone

the whole sky
is illuminated

with the softest
golden radiance

and finally
you see

just briefly

how these clouds
can

light up

the whole world.

There are
people

so intuitive
so subtly sensitive
to others

you donít
notice them,

no intrusive presence
to draw your attention.

They move gently
among us

without rippling
our waters

with a soft word
here,

a gentle expression
there,

a slight action
that doesnít register
in your conscious mind

until

you realize

how these small gestures
can

lighten up

your whole world.
