Lovely Census
C

Rocks struck by pebbles-
 1
I wish I could show you how splendid
 2
was their fleet blonde hare!
 3
A quail accompaniment rustled
 4
over cool, sunlit deliberations.
 5
If I could make the sounds
 6
of their electromagnetic eccentricity,
 7
the sweet-orange pheasant may
 8
not have hover-flown away suddenly.
 9
 
 
It was no mistake, a curious dragon,
 10
his childish dog-like face surprised
 11
behind me, pictured in low clouds.
 12
A Tyrannosaurus Rex fought
 13
a losing battle, culled backwards
 14
as quick-flowing clouds displaced.
 15
It balked at the great upheld trunk
 16
of a stolid oncoming mammoth.
 17
 
 
The earthen faeries of my sunset
 18
wandered-chosen, cobblestone mound
 19
flashed a bright otherworldy light
 20
within their comfortable ground-
 21
thanking me as I spontaneously paused,
 22
(on their supra-conscious cue) ,
 23
and looked back a moment walking down:
 24
"We enjoyed observing the photography!"
 25
 
 
Through a darkened parkway gully,
 26
an owl screeched by low-patrolling!
 27
I caught its sight like a valuable dream!
 28
As I neared the end of the lower path,
 29
I saw up above the private-fenced hill
 30
a pictured mystical flight in moisture-
 31
rich clouds: a handsome, bearded,
 32
smiling old rider with a great wizard-
 33
like staff accompanied that great owl!
