the moon! is your logo…not McDonalds

there is no place
quite like the other

each valley
each plain
each mountain
each plateau

each
with its own
land forms
life forms
weather
and light

encased in a shared
halo of air

we are binding this earth in asphalt.

binding
and branding
we block the night sky
with our signs.

from
above
we look
like fire

    Beautiful and ‘encased in a shared halo of air’ is especially exquisite.

    Thank you Paul. I dig that line also. Here is a poem for you:

    Someone
    had to say it.

    The cosmos said it
    through you.

    Through me.

    My favorite line is: from above we look like fire. You never cease to amaze me with your ability to put so much into so few lines.

    pauline,

    Thank you so much for your continuing encouragement. I am writing this from San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. A long way from your Berkshires and my Endless Mountains.
