A ghost

A ghost stands out in the motionless sky,

where white flocks float. 

A ghost rises up pallid in the distance,

inaccessible witness since the dawn of time.

A ghost overlooks, majestic, the tiny village,

while the sunlight rests on its slopes.

A dark wall of houses stops my gaze 

and, above, the sharp outline of the Matterhorn

guides the dance of the clouds.
