A meteor spoke a crackling language overhead-
This Brobdingnag stick-match struck in Earth's ether
spoke deep and dark expanses of space and time
ignited orange, yellow and blue images appearing
from immense universal maw uttering a spit fire-wad of awe
into blue eyed skies, torn white clouds, and waiting waters

An undiscovered country loomed in its ash tail map
reaching into ever distant region, grinding planets and stars
with dense gravitational teeth and jaws to rip and rent
into interstellar shreds our known and unknown
yet here, spoken in simplest terms of flames and fury,
thrown by all points Hercules above to notify a dreamer

love gave one more kiss
it lingered with ardent lips
bone passionate jaws

Inside sand box memories lay buried plastic army men
outside sandy reveries, shoes and socks lay married
happy feet curl, feeling grainy treasures deep
In shade's lee, above, lodgepole tree with singing wren
these theater birds, all limelight, in leaves varied
peep remembrances, chirp and cheep of cherished day
warm and breezy grass-bend-sighs, passing into keep
now feet in socks in shoes walk home along a mindful way

within this skin music's voicing refrain
Casca's intoned warning call tongue wagging
fire rains from burnt heaven's distilled wigging
sprawling epidermal main street moraine
"are you not moved, when all the sway of earth"
its dearth, sirens insufficient tenor
unskilled twitters croaking seismic tremors
harken, absent measure, wanting lines mirth

laughter sweetened melody mocks vivid
yodel heart's song along lands mosaic
strumming rhythm, beating drum's head rigid
singing, 'ja sa, ja sa', German, Gaelic
language littered in notes adrift gifted
laurels offered, dancing  jig archaic

*wigging (slang) - scolding
* ja sa - yes, it is

giggling children pull synthetic webbing tight
this front yard tree did not mind its branches bound

cotton candy webs festoon neighborhood round
polymer birds, quickly caught, and boned in flight

snakes gathered motionless on leaves and grass
waiting for a standing rubber rat's first move

as cold breezes begin to fog in evening's loony mood
tattered fabric clouds consume remaining day's pass

now night extends its long and hairy legs in cramps
as shadows move among threads suspended stiff

All Hallow's Eve howls its curdled screams
spiders creep, crawl and wrap sweet cadaver corpses

a smooth stone skipped once, twice
would there be a third kiss more
how that sun beam followed
each ripple's glittering diamond eye
inverting, reverting that perfect flight
to plunge into this day's memories, hallowed
watched by flying fish and twisting mermaids
holding out fin and fingers to touch a miracle
now sunk to rest in depth's lobster dream
following one, two, more, in bottom lines
march to an unknown destiny of instinct's embrace
