What does the mountain winds bring to the Amazon?

ON THE WIND

ON THE WIND

All morning clouds swirl through this valley & over the jungle-tangled

mountains tumbled by cascades, veiling densely snowed Tungurahua. On a southeastern wind, smoke & ash drift with the leaden clouds.

Come afternoon stark blue rends those clouds. From a roof top four boys fly a

kite, distant, barely visible against the sky a-shuttling, quickly reweaving into a thick grey shawl, shedding mist upon

this village, whorling with sun, spinning a rainbow mountain to mountain.
