mysterious car headlights in dark fog

12 Observations

zebras are moon horses
skies paint them nightly

dandelions are new children
air seeds of blown hope

fairy lights are astronauts
floating as midnight suns

fading stars yearn slowly
they ache with millennia

tulips stream new bands
like yellow fragrant teens

clouds are pale balloons
bursting only for the rain

ladybirds are winged poets
cloaked in split red dresses

soil sings raw at dawn
murmuring under silent dew

farthings are lost keys
they open ancient lanes

jungles are hot blue magic
beating to flustered rhythms

eyelashes are salt breaths
minutiae of sea questions

jazz finds its east breaks
quivering in soft satin
