            EVIDENCE OF LIFT

We wonder,
what makes those puffy white cumi clouds
suddenly materialize in clear blue sky? 

It's heat from the ground,
a big balloon of hot air breaking loose,
A thermal--rising, striving, climbing
until it reaches cold heights,
where the hot air divests itself of moisture
and its signature blooms for us as cloud.

We  see the hawks wheeling
as they work those thermals to stay aloft.
With such aplomb, such grace,
 they sense the presence of lift
so much more acutely than we will ever know...

The hawks, who revel in their exultation of sky-high
freedom as they play, and pity us groundlings.
