Like A Cloud - Poem by gershon hepner
Like a Cloud
Like nimbus, many clouds are dark,
like cumulus some, white as cirrus,
like both is the unspoken spark
reflected by poetic mirrors.
Like clouds are words for which I reach,
some very dark while some are bright,
precipitating from my speech
like silent rain that falls at night.
Eaven Boland discusses Ted Hughes in 'Ted Hughes: A Recollection' (The New York Times Book Review, January 24,1999) . She writes that poets like Hughes are not monuments but mirrors. It occurred to me that Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath were both mirrors reflecting the dark clouds that hung over each other's head.
