Chaotic squadrons of
reconnaissance before the mower.
Flairful acrobatic killer drones
with bulb-eyed precision
nab mid-flight mosquitoes.
On leave, they dust daisies
and drink honeydew from
ant farms on hollyhock stalks.
They bivouac on cattails
under luna’s night watchful eyes.
Laura Bloomsbury is today’s host at dVerse. Laura says:
- Pen a poem that is about FLYING/FLIGHT (NOT FLEEING)
- Take ONE or MORE of our natural winged phenomena – bird, bat, insect, seed, flying fish! (but NOT mythical creature with wings, NOT mechanical objects either)
- Your poem can be purely literal or mixed with metaphor or even allegory
- Write as subject or object; 1st or 3rd person
- Preferably use FREE VERSE (like Sandburg & Lawrence above) as that best suits the subject of flying!
