Vision of Peace, by Michael Rothenberg

Between huge blanket of black clouds

and ragged graymouth of cityscape

Eye of green morning light


Wind raking bay (thunder hum) thrashing voice

of branches & leaves


                                   Worlds pass

                                   More worlds



Storm blown away

for another more pleasant distortion

   Not boredom

           but interest in someone not found here


Two pelicans

too far away to know what they’re doing

I put on my glasses

         Three pelicans, four, seven


any amount of floating & flight, even that jet plane

going the other way
