Poem By Brian Bolding


They dove away

Fleeing the light of the city

To some darker clouds overhead

Where you can’t see

The mischief and the agony

The calling from far far away

In another time, another world

Awakening forces

Trembling undercurrents

Something surreal

Flying in the air

Like a big blotch on the world

A monster with no hair

Diving into the sky

So alive and on fire

As the sun goes down.
