cotton candy skies 14 December, 2005

Once under cotton candy skies,

Air rife with rising bubbles

A bird fell

Slow,

In swooping circles

Upon that rock of silver shadows

Deep in the womb of some forgotten cave

A drowning, perhaps, from tears unexpressed.

“Curse you full moon. You stole my dreams away!”

shouts the maiden from her concrete tower

without a care of the listening ears in all the land.

Compass on the ocean

Guiding, beguilingly, toward the mermaid

Anchored on the Lorelei’s back;

She, beneath the waves breathing water.

Ripped from the time of times ago

When a whisper was as a scream from a forgotten deity.

Crazy fire flash and frolic behind the

Tongue of a dancing serpent

-in a circle

-in the sand,

eyes closed

once under cotton candy skies.
