Meadow – a poem by KC Bailey

Time departs on air
dandy clocks
spread their hands
fine fingers, feather weight 
            float     out       of         v     i     e      w
swept up on unseen drafts
into crisp sky-light
lost to the blue
eyes cast higher
to follow 
the haphazard path
of a dancing seed
a cat chasing butterflies
weaves senseless loops
children           leap     and clap
at rising soap bubbles
random acts of joy
in organised shapes
beauty in non-conformity
that hides mathematical certainty
be more like a petal
on the breath of a summer's day
let airstreams guide you –                   soar.
