MJ blathers

dark poet who loves to laugh


sudden rain

downpour from a thunder clap

cloud-out of the lights of the village below

stark blue-white exposure of my cowering


Leave a comment

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


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
