MJ blathers

dark poet who loves to laugh

blue jets

above the thunder

three hundred miles above the speed of sound

a mere single second in the stratosphere

above the thunderheads

lightning that spreads upwards

thirty miles into stratosphere

conical

blue as it elementalizes nitrogen

or gigantic jets

striking upward sixty miles

almost beyond our earth’s vital cushion

changing color as it approaches red edge

of stricken nitrogen

how little of what is

do we see or know

where we huddle below

as a retired physician, i have needed to talk with many persons about end of life. And then I cared for my husband for more than five years.
