He saw the specks of Gulf clouds flame high in the air. And a goat came near and sniffed at him and stared with its cold yellow eyes.

The metaphor quoted above is comparing the soft, welcoming clouds to the intense heat of a flame. The clouds are warm and beautiful..... they're sparse but welcoming. In context, the beauty of nature is seen in dual ways...... the welcoming warmth of the sky, and the cold stare of the goat.
