layers of time

looking into the sky
it was first dark
& stark

then
now you see light
now you don't

loud, thunder shouts
but rain, somewhere
in the great hide-outs

by now
more than half-an-hour
has gone

wind strong
looks like
it's going to storm

somewhere higher up
a beam of light
shines, like a spotlight

two little birds
lean against each other
close & tight
one with eyes open
one with eyes closed
both frightened? I suppose

another half-an-hour
will soon
be gone

winds throng
still looks like
it's going to storm...

here
in my studio
ideas pour...
