Above And Beyond

Above And Beyond short poem

Uploaded by curtisjohnsonsr


Above us, lightning was dazzling, blinking, and picturesque.
Blackened sky, moonless and star free; a massive light show!
Like a human anatomy of nerves, spread in every direction;
I wonder the bounty of harnessing such explosive power.

A storm is brewing, introduced by such thunderous sounds.
Can one even imagine the extent of such awesome treasure?
Below us? A roll, a shake, a quake, and shock waves of terror!
Beyond? Wind, clouds, falling stars; it seems everything moves!

Package From Beyond The Walls Of This City long poem

As I walked back to my house, i heard a stranger that passed me by mumbling numbly to himself about why a sidewalk will never unfold itself near the end of a routine and then become a fretwork of shadows.
