Weather Channels

We live on clouds
Our continent-clouds, shifting
weather-patterns in a slower orbit
How many weather-generations live and die
in a single moment of our slow-crunching, rock-moving time?

Ice ages come and gone in a winter, 
Global warming forgotten in half a summer's time. 
Long darknesses, prophecies told by stars and moon 
foretold and come to pass in a day's worth of a kingdom's rise and rule and fall.
