parachuting  

across the yard

the long sax notes shape 

a seaside breeze

what a little sugar 

can do

left behind 

the dream raven’s

dropped feather

wild summer 

all bundled up 

into bales of hay

stretching his wings the pilot moonlights as a crow

moon’s pull 

the Atlantic crossing 

the Atlantic

the children build 

a sandman
