Silver lining

Silver liningThey say every cloud has a silver lining.
But not from above. There’s a vast ocean of dust and vapor
convolving with fragments of thin air.
You must read that things don’t get better here.
Only in such perspective can you
understand buoyancy, how the clouds become
borderless tides. How the sunlight turns into
the opposite nights. Then if you look down you’d find
there are no lines. Only discontinuity of waves
where sailors are granted a peek to Atlantis.
After that, to return from the stratosphere
is to claim one will never reach the land.
Each landing becomes a deeper dive. Now look above
Do you still see the silver lining?
