Daydreams in the Night

Bubble the cloud in the sky
quadratic equations and Pi
bubble the ocean’s deep rhythm
intuitive glass logarithm


Surprise flowing sap under bark
elastic as tangent in arc
surprise fishy scales silver glitter
intermittent as rushing brook’s titter


Flamenco’s flamingos pink flying
across rainbowed sections prismatic
flamenco petticoats defying
the castanet backdrop ecstatic


All these for a billion sweet summers
quiet jasmine filled evenings, rose petals
all these as the distant dark drummers
make tattoo predictions, dusk settles


In the chocolate tinged night I discern
thought patterns in candlewick’s burn
