gave Florida’s clouds a good rollicking then gone
hurrying to slow
round Venus 7 times (tenacious bugger)
from fiery face
school us dumb ants
how gentle sun
is fierce roiling, boiling, swirling, seething, crackling, gerundical
8 minutes away.

A quadrille in celebration of the launch of the Parker Solar Probe – for dverse, the poets’ pub where De is hosting and asks us to quadrille using the word ‘box’. And in keeping with this theme, here’s Willie Nelson from his album ‘Naked Willie Nelson’ (shudder) with a Morecombe & Wise theme – Bring me sunshine.
