Points of Light

A bright cleavage sweeps the road,
Lighting eyes like fireflies.
Crows in night black robes look on,
As the lights swirl in alarm.

Thump, thump, the base kettle booms,
Playing finalities awe.
It's the glare in the bright eyes,
That brings about their demise.

Percussion booms cross the field,
A session in eulogy.
Standing in mesomeric mime,
Thumps the rabbit every time.

The tense lights swerve in motion,
Gliding, turning wave on wave.
Light the road, in brilliant blend
In endless seconds they end.

I cannot see the midnight fare.
The toll laying the highway there.
But in the mornings braving light,
Will show the carnage of the night.

like lines, never-ending,
constantly forming,
reforming and bending."

~one voice~, Hoot,
I thought this one was in the elephants grave yard, well thanks for digging it up and commenting. You guys are great. I got to thinking of all the road trips I've made and all the jack rabbits along the road. It was a weird thought but I've been getting alot of then lately. Thanks again. *L*

It flowed right through seymour...Good job.

I try to read most of your poems even though I dont post a reply to most due to lack of time.(Do you think it will be a good idea to leave a smiley face as a reply when cramped for time?)

I think you have a great sense of poetry..Keep up the great work..
