Feathered Dinosaurs (Poems)

Spectral feather glide
mangled carapaces
silent on leaf litter


Wraith bone cloud fractures
interstellar light raps
on viridian canopies.

Sinornithosaurus motions through branches
moths tread air
evading the tooth laden maw.

Momentary distraction of moon beam furrows
gliding wing
shorn of body.


From branch to branch
feathered rainbow flicker
punctuates viridian sheath

“Moths tread air” – inspired by this article (http://www.npr.org/2011/11/04/142024620/how-an-elegant-moth-stays-aloft) found by Gray (http://endlessbridge.com/). You should click on that blog, its awesome.
