Utter Nonsense

One cold day, I was burning up
The rain outside was dry
The sunshine, mooned each falling star
Out there, inside was I

Reading, when I'm fast asleep
I saw no movement stand
I reached without and outstretched arm
to flick the fly that land

Bouncing, being very still
I thought it lively, dying
When up it sprang, just flatly
All it's energy, spent trying

Salt I sprinkled, as it poured
Atop, the underneath, it's belly
Finally flopping, to and fro
Then landing in my jelly

    Reminds me of one bright morning/ in the middle of the night/ two dead boys got up to fight....etc Delightful stuff. I feel sorry for your fly. Glad I didn't miss this one. Always, Will

    I like the illiteration inside "Utter Nonsense". Your 3rd and 4th stanzas are ingenious. Even though the words don't make sense, the image does. As a kid I used to put firecrackers into toads. I think your fly had it worst than my toad.

    Beautiful write! I just recently accepted Jesus as my Lord and savior. An angel came to me in a dream and called me jeremiah, my name is eduardo but I changed it to jeremiah born anew. =)
