Spider Web Lullabies

Posted to Poetry




I.
Infinite pursuits down the glass highways of dreams
Mortar and pestle cognition
Grinding reality down into phantasmal dust
Steady deep fogged breaths
Lulling you further into the soft blue skies of mind
Poking the clouds with plump nocturnal fingers
And airy sentiment
Sleeping the great ghost sleep of angels

II.
Grasping the copper fluidity of spacious dry fields
Boiling delicately under the August sun
A mystical golden sea
Baking in an afternoon
Marvelous and solitary patches of rich brown earth
like morose slices of heaven
Majestically fertile
Noble
Waiting to bear their fruit
When the rains come

III.
Wide eyed and innocent in the open night
Under dark water skies
Racing the stars home
