Under Flamingo Clouds

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 30, 2008 by dc

A week of factory smoke
Glued tight by a still wind,
Sitting pink above a sunset,

Flamingo clouds
Perched in the country.

Cats fang voles,
Pheasants skip like infants,
Bullocks sulk in unison
And the sky interrupts with showers

As I sit cold on a bench,
Rain waking my face,
My shivering body
Bringing the trees to life,

Leaves gently falling,
My heart beneath soil.
