Reflection of Power [Creation Myth #17]


Criss-crossed girder power
pylons carrying threads
thin as nylon, towering -
I shrink away, unlinked.
Buzz away insignificant me.

Sat amongst straw-dry grass,
upon hard earth, over ants -
patter under over around -
squishably small. Then there's me
under pylons, scuttle-scuppered.

You are dry, flaking out now -
below, cars scurry,
intercepting one another's paths.
I look to you. You are quiet.

Soaking-up the rough cusp
of earth, power, mechanical man.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
