Arizona Dreaming – A Cooperative Poem

October 11, 2005

As Phoenix I arise anew,
above the floodwaters of my past.
Bidding the tangled weeds adieu,
I set my boat adrift at last.
I wander pari passu with all sea life, then flew
above the waters to set upon my task.

No creature as replete as I
could leave the ground to touch the sky.

And touch upon the sun’s searing sea,
I fall upon a clear night fleeing.
Bathed in starlight, swim the galaxy
