a break shows in the clouds

sun through clouds

sun through clouds

Sailors have an expression
about the weather:
they say, the weather is a great bluffer.

I guess the same is true
of our human society —
things can look dark, then
a break shows in the clouds,
and all is changed,

sometimes rather suddenly.

Hang on to your hat.
Hang on to your hope.
And wind the clock,
for tomorrow is another day.

~ E. B. White (via the marginalian)
