There was a storm out there, on the sea of ferns
and small spiders crept in and out of old burns.
Roaming the desert, a dog found the dusk
and in a flower somewhere, red-pink with musk,
a fairy curled up in the arms of a bee.
The midges were swirling like water back home
and in the sky, a jellyfish hung all alone.
Under layers of ice, a horse in a hole;
in a meadow of gold and blue starlets, a foal.
Far out beyond grounds of new comets, you saw me.
