STAR WARRIORS

 

15


Distant hills bare against the sky
sculptured stark by setting sun
punctuated
garlanded
by pale, long stemmed
angular flannel flowers
virginal pure
stretched tall
dancing wind's rise and fall
turning eternally
stirring the sky
hypnotizing
mesmerizing
gathering threads of cloud
spinning air flow into kinetic energy

Bemused Sufi
arms outstretched
seeking transcendental truth
spinning, spinning
spells against pollution's pall.

Surreal star warriors
white knights
standing stern, tall
fighting the dark....

Spare bare bones
sustainability
economy
etched against the sky
in clean dignity.
