pictures in the sun
wield no potentcy;
their touch is off-skin
& distant
& your changing locale
creates them
sculptures
of flesh, bright edge
& playful.

unstanding,
walled not with glass
but metres of thickly-spreading air,
decorations, the wallpaper of life
they go unnoticed

unless such light is borne
that throws
the dull trade & pull of days
into dismemberment,
unless not thick, but bright
glowing capsules of air
press your eyeballs
your nose
& ridged fingertips
to the swelling,
blowing
cloud.

You create webs of words, my friend - and we can't let this slip away...

I'm so glad I found this Seaangel--I love couds and the way you use words is magical.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

the wall paper of life....man how i wish i could steel that line!!! Martie's right - your way with words is amazing.  This poem reminded me of cloud-watching when i was a child - such fascinating things, clouds.  You describe them perfectly.

Andy, I don't think so either
I love to watch "sculptures of flesh"
Wish I had this kind of imagination with words. It's wonderful

Oi - you two! I did NOT say it was weird! That's just Andy trying to get me in trouble with Sea.

(Maybe just a little weird...  )

This is lovely! Long,white clouds perhaps?
Nice one! You are very gifted.
And so is your friend.
Power to both your pens!
