By John Cannon

In only
a minute or two

the cloud that was
a perfect cowboy hat


a breaching whale,

then quite quickly

to a soaring bird.

In only
a minute or two

the stiff and grumpy
old man


a gliding swan

almost floating

a wooded path,

his frown replaced
by a beaming smile
at a chattering squirrel.

And then,
without a sound,
dusk slipped in so softly

that everything
in the world

seemed so perfect,
so right.

How marvelous ――

the wonders,
the miracles,
the sweet, sweet


of change.
