A Wanting Earth

by G. Jack Urso

my dreams are scenes

                of silent themes

flickering light

                onto the screen

predacious serpents of our slumber

                surround our thoughts

like the nordic world-dragon

                jörmungandr who caresses

the planet with his desire

a message from the gods

seeking a berth

dripping pain from old wounds

on a wanting Earth
