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

                                   Pause

 

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
