Ornamental Light

Reflected in the blown glass ball
Bouncing off:
Green bird
Trumpeting angel
A goose not yet laying
Hand drawn shirt
Scarf swaddled bunny
Triple eyed Smokey bulb bauble
Tiny ancient bells
Mr. Mulligan
Lights lights lights

Is it bright where you are?
Here's hoping...

By degrees

And plus ten ain't nothin
Or something so remarkable
Except if you've always been here and remember
Drifts storms piles
Today a day of splashes
Mush and melting
Kids on the afternoon bus in t-shirts
Morning coffee at patio tables
In the sun
Emotionally calculating
How to embrace the new normal

snug onesie/poler bunting bag
Elmer Fudd ear flapper
olives almonds avocados
chips chips chips
Electricity for Everybody!
Splash State
sweet dreams

We're floating up
(The way I see it)
Higher and higher
Ensconced in our gleaming bubbles
And the higher we float
The more we can see:
The vast vastness beneath us
The only trouble is is that it's less
And our olfactories are set to strike
Sure we can see it but what does that do to our reptile brains
That are all about sensing in ways yet unknown to us
I guess for now we meander on
In our transparent spheres
Somewhere between terra and sky
News of the world
