skyline tunnels that hide

Posted to Action Poetry




The lulling haze of thin clouds
breaks silence
above skyline tunnels that hide.

Children and birds laugh
and lives continue
under skyline tunnels that hide.

Dreams hang around on wires
dangling from the rooftops
inside the skyline tunnels that hide.

Breath, like elegant silhouetted dragons
dances for a split second jig
against the skyline tunnels that hide.

And, the poet sits and looks
out the opened window, thinking
about skyline tunnels that hide.
