While, Darkness, Roguishly Pouts - Poem by Debora Short

I’m riding warm dragons
Bridled with soft bright feathers
But laughing clouds
Reflect horses and eons
Dancing at water’s edge…

While cedars sway
In a new balance
In muddied sneakers…
And red buds recede modestly
As they slip on the latest rustling
Mint green taffetas

Tri ~ colored blackbirds
Lead a gregarious chorus
Breaking at twilight to
Share the stage
With those classic evening songsters,
You know… those local favorites…
The Coyotes and the Pond Frogs

Darkness, roguishly pouts
And my impish dragons
Generously, Illuminate
That Shropshire Pond
With magic and brilliance

While black and white spotted ponies
Stable them-selves
For a pleasant evening performance
