Danger is out of sight

hidden beyond soft clouds

and gentle rains

lulling us into false safety

building our confidence

into arrogance

imaging ourselves infallible

as danger hides

lying in wait

like some old movie monster

beneath beds

in the back of closets

buried beneath the familiar

the comfortable

and the pleasant

until we rush

foolhardy and courageous

into certain disaster – Caroline A. Slee

Into the Clouds
