A puzzling encounter with space and air flight related symbols from a ground perspective written in verse form and the recent mixed media work titled “Chrysalis”.
I was inspired to finish this mixed media work, which was close to completion but had been left on the back burner for quite a while, after writing the poem. I recalled having the work available and on the “ready for finishing touches” list, which seemed somehow befitting. Hope you enjoy.
Cling Oscillate Cloud
Whitish bright light dusk impregnated mist,
outside, the streets, desolate luminous kiss,
nothing around me except structures unbound,
Up ahead is a symbol of space flight that is wobbling,
NASA’s trans border shuttle, rope tied and dangling,
pall nebula it’s rear, synchronous pendulum swing,
both shuttle and blank cloud oscillate unison cling.
Approaching said spectacle, white haze all around,
quite reach touch this vehicle,
Stand and observe, time dubious plain sight,
sky distant chained airplane, amiss in high flight.
