Everything but the spoken word
is aware of its existence:
vegetation, rivers, the stars;
they are centered on nothing else.
They, all, comprise the universe.
Even this imprudent poet
lives it in part, less dignified
within it save benighted
freedom of my talkative mind.
Albert Ahearn

The yellow incandescent lights
Of early hours stare outward from
their artificial galaxy
like miniature jaundiced stars.
An Exxon Mobil neon sign
Emits bursts of intense red light
Blinking like a tiny pulsar;
Two blue-white halogen headlights
flicker along a thoroughfare

With trusting innocence we've played
with nets and jars amid a field
of muted rustling blooms that yield
Their subtle breaths of perfumed air
where milkweed monarch's foraged there.

elusiveness till next alight
on efflorescence's afield
Sedulity kept our eyes peeled
on tawny-orange and black, large wings
in hopes we would be capturing
these lovely regal butterflies
with gauzy wings and very spry.
Albert Ahearn
