Ode on a Dali

Ode on a Dali

Bound by earthly skin and bone
beneath the blue and starry dome
yearning yet cemented he stands
on desolate lands..

Thankful for a glimpse above
wherein the hawks and doves
soar unfettered free and high
in endless sky..

Yet soaring not, he’s landbound
his bony visage fey and brown
tells but half the strand
of his resolute stand..

Sunburnt with his fervent hope
his gaze e’er upwards floats
gripping tightly his frail base
the Sun cheers his upturned face.
