The patch of blue is witnessed
to reside inside the body of cloud
constantly on the move from right
to the left.

Seen in the southern sky beyond
the flock of gum trees that remain
standing still by the side of the fire trail.

But while the words are being ascribed,
The cover of cloud is seen to widen,

Wanting to eat away the body of blue
trapped within.

Although soon a new patch of blue
covered with the mushroom cloud,

Is seen to resurface from within
the body of cloud.
