on a golden breath


lines into lights
what web is this

what atmosphere
orders such rainbows

I will ride
descended on a light sleigh
arms wide
to gather up gold

where is
the sun
is it just out of reach
is a corona
as close as I come

who would have thought
that this mesh sail
of lustre
would be all that remained
of my sky-boat

oh blow
blow solar wind
send me out on my way
send me home

blow blow
blow me golden breath
yes blow me
all the way
