stairs      stairs
all directions
shadows in the sun
car center
vehicles interchange
back and forth
crosswalk people border
highway swarms
smog occludes
with sunlight’s warning
blue sky
hot air balloons
plastered with logos

who owns the sky?

we’re bigger than a breadbox
but smaller than the sky
more virulent than smallpox
anathema of why

I have a video for you this week.  The video refers to humans, but you are free to choose nature, music, art, atomic structure or anything else that inspires you.

What I did was watch the video and write down the images that flashed through and listed them.  My question starts my impressions.

    That sounds like a riddle at the end that Gollum wouldn’t be able to figure out.
    A light, airy poem with subtly heavy undertones……
