Spokes

Pink sky’s medicine wheel,
forecasting taste to steal
the treasure marked by that X
If I could hitch a ride
by hawk-wing, fly beside
astral travelers, tempest
Aimed for that gold-tinged hoop,
the focused gilded loop
of precious foreverness.
 
"Medicine Wheel Clouds" by Em Jollie

  1. Neat, unique description. I love when poets' perceptions change how I see the world.

  2. i think this poem should be dedicated to the memory of Charlie Chesterman, who just passed away far too soon. his songs have been very important to me and are a huge influence on my writing. up to the sky, cowboy!

  5. I looked him up and I am listening to his music now. I'm ignorant about music, so listen to all suggestions. He has a neat twang and great hands. I couldn't find any lyrics, but it was a joy to hear him play. Recordings give musicians "precious foreverness." Of a sort.
