Hoppin'

a few of my favorite things

The momentum of consciousness -
simultaneous release and embrace
when the mind and body are worn down
to only a thin shell around
the expanding pressure of sleep.

Sunsets seen as the sky's final cry,
desperate violence and slow rage;
a creature straining
against the dying of the light.

As the rain starts again, sudden, heavy,
the tops of puddles seem to reach up
toward the sky with droplet-tipped arms,
extended in praise, or plea, or simple joy.
