Crazy Cloud

Petals are falling on north terrace at dawn
A feeling so old like you’ve just been born
Coming down
From a night on the town
But I could still walk for miles yet
& nowhere yet I have to get

I was down in the park
Writing verse chorus verse
Relegislating the universe

Watched the fireball spiral philharmonic inferno
Smile on the face of the night
from beneath an old tree
away from the streetlights

Marvels by the minute went cheap
My tongue slept to speak
Of the visionary vast vaults
Of that vibrating deep

Caught beat of the black swans’ feet
& the timing & rhyme of the primes
Danced in a lavender lane
With my mind aflame and my eyes ashine
talking aloud to no-one near
blessing all that’s yet to fall
& all still to appear

and a morning glory
told me it’s story
as the first light first shone clear

In another century
I would have worn clogs and threadbare shroud
And wandered this country
Like a crazy cloud

A foam of forms a fountain of filaments
A harmonic garden
A music of mountains
A catastrophe of shattered dew drops
A bordello of bassoons
An overflow of autumn
An unsigned poem
Unmown forests
A foliage of fireworks
Gasseous glass spiders
A helium beach

All for you my love
