The Book of Clouds

The Book of Clouds


Poems by Juris Kronbergs
Illustrated by Anete Melece

“When clouds have their flags fluttering,

it means the clouds are gathering

right in your neighbourhood.


They’ve all been summoned to discuss

things that have nothing to do with us:


the dangers posed

by sun dogs and high mountain snows,

and how to get the winds to slow;

the vexing questions

of air-space congestion


that dog their days –

that’s to say

what they are and what they will become.”
