Poem 3 Revised

Listen

Below letters
Beneath words
Seeking the mellow, yellow-green
Found softly fluttering
Southward through fields of cut grass.
bowed stocks of feathered dandelions
Words seek flight
Broad, taught sparrow wings
The wind whipping, fluttering flitting
Stripping worth, weight value
Voices seek words
Find letters. Deep puckered
Lips gumming nonsense
Hollow pockets of air
Sucking bubbles from seaweed bulbs
Floating up. up. up
Hush, the quiet comes
A breath across the bending stocks
All kneeling north with the
wind, under the weight of whim
Flightless feathered dandelions,
Only weeds.
