Abloom — A Dream

“Abloom” — C.Birde, 11/19

 

Apart.

Afloat.

Untethered.

A gleaming white

rectangle of steel

girders

bolts

beams

enclosed in sheet-rock,

resurfaced in smooth plaster.

(suspended mid-air

betwixt and between

heaven and earth)

Large windows –

dark and glossy,

unblinking as the eyes

of Argus –

peer out from

four impassive

faces;

an alignment

of rows and columns

arranged in subliminal

drumbeat.

(suspended mid-air

betwixt and between

heaven and earth)

Static.

Patient.

Impersonal.

Until

until

from all seams and

edges describing

roofline

windows

quoins

large curls

of crinkly white paper

sprout

uncoil

uncurl

like tongues

of honeysuckle flowers,

each a brilliant hue –

red, yellow, green,

pink, purple, blue.

The building entire

(suspended mid-air

betwixt and between

heaven and earth)

unexpectedly transformed

in whimsical riot

of motion and color.

Afloat and

abloom.

 

— C.Birde, 11/19
