to catch a cloud

how do I catch its attention
do you know?
do I go up to the top
of the hill and poke it
with a very sharp stick
or belt it on the head
with a long-handled axe
dance, perhaps
or sing or pray
wrap my words around birds’ feet
send them flying up with my pleas
or do I go out in a boat
and try to catch that magic fish
for which I have but one wish
and it won’t be for a castle
or a crown or the moon
just a merciful downpour of rain
is all I’ll ask for, nothing more
so if you know
please tell me how
you catch the attention
of a cloud

Clouds by Sergei Rukavishnikov

We’re getting desperate for rain here at Stonebow, I’m ready to try anything :)

P.S.
6.52 p.m. the next day: It worked!! It’s raining :)))
