America

A bald eagle fills the entire sky.
How beautiful!
Now that image fulfills the definition
Of the word ineffable.

Where's my camera?
No, I left it home.
It's only five miles.
I can hurry, get the camera,
And return for the shot.

Half a mile later the eagle cloud
Was nothing more
Than cloud cover.
America.
