Doubt



This unkind weather always reminds me of the shore,
overcast skies threatening rain, moisture in the air,
a motive of nature indecipherable via mortal means,
some impending significance, some event of import
waiting to ride in on wayward air or ocean currents,
or calamitous circumstances circling, cosmic vultures
too high for us to see, or a forbidding doom dunning
in the dusk like the ditch in Donovan Leitch's song.
Weather has multiple meanings. I could be wrong.
