Sea-Breeze Front

Green

in gilded

afternoon sunlight’s glow

chases the ordinary from

the dancing trees due east

across our pond which flows northward

under pre-summer’s presumptive thrust from the Gulf.

Cobalt grey boiling roiling cumulonimbus butts mooning Tampa,

anvil-headed bullies come stomping up and over the ridgeline,

trashing the manmade Scylla and Charybdis commute on eye fore.

Quite lovely it is when towering white giants come through,

innocently wielding chaos within their bulk darkening the sky.

Their fury, their bellowing breath cleanses the air,

leaving all around us cleansed, scoured bright.

Chronologically set, they come before night,

as Sol is heading west

charging with golden hue

water flowing free

and dancing

trees.

 

The folks at dVerse are holding an Etheree bee.

  1. Gorgeous. So many unexpected images here, fulfilling your promise that the incoming front has “chase(d) the ordinary” from the landscape. A few of my favorites: “anvil-headed bullies come stomping up and over the ridgeline” ; ” towering white giants come through, // innocently wielding chaos within their bulk” ; “bellowing breath cleanses the air”. I also liked how you use the etheree’s expanding / contracting form to imaginatively zoom out and back in over the scene of the trees dancing in the breeze.
