̄♦̄ Running Child ̄♦̄


June 4 by The Running Son

prompt: Radiohead’s live version of “Like Spinning Plates”. Respect for their work and vision.

̄♦̄  Running Child  ̄♦̄

from the sky, bounced high
off my knee up wild again.
A balance seen this blue globe
over: children meaning to cry

but only laugh.
Dispite sun-dads gone too fast by,  these master
with craft an ever quick and lasting smile, running running

bouncing miles!
Ripe fruit! Yet,

nations harvests are best
read in the colors of nesting moods: powder blue
for the sky
we run fast to. Fresh orange
all down you. Cornering

yellow, no pink cloud
Simplicity choosing the color
of news of national uprisings,
or the fusion of tired heavenly hopes,
or of stars falling,

or lions hiding down hunter’s
mile, a walk of children, with much calling
for birds and coins,
and a special western look
at other worlds,

of flying girls and running
child-friendly coasts, rolling free,
dropping in to a curve
ball bouncing endless green to the sea.
California breezes originate

from African breathing?
Been meaning to sponsor
the cleaner air
surrounding continents
where the Fountain sits:

A new in-pouring of kits, droplets
of crossed blood,
sinners prayers, packets
of western hard landing

of separating the actor
from the action.
Cast me in African blue. Child
your wild path free!
crying “Hello!”,

holding you,
watching close, tenderly for smiles.
A hi-five open
to you from open arm views
of eastern evening winds,

and hopeful western news.
