SOMEWHERE AMID THE CLOUDS

Somewhere amid the clouds, there's
a boundary that so many were afraid
to cross, desiring simultaneously
to achieve this despite obstacles
they were encountering under way

Unsubdued forces, maybe even out of
this world, were to hide just there.
Meanwhile, when Mach was broken
and the thunder spread by echo,
silence took place. And a landscape?

The landscape was running away more
and more faster leaving behind
sound and a few frightened men
being found on the flight path
of a machine heavier than air

Somewhere amid the clouds, there's Eden,
however none pilot has seen it so far,
although the sky is cut by thousands of
white threads; perhaps it's hidden in/on
a different dimension, flight level

Here, on Earth, we still know so
little about the most crucial matters,
nevertheless, going far beyond mundane
temporality which, somewhere amid the clouds,
imperceptibly transforms itself into eternity.
