Introduction to a Form of Poetry: Lannet

Based on distant memory


The senses stumble upon . . . Awareness—

Looming nearby, although invisible

Perceptions growing in intensity

Suddenly we realize—what is that crash!?

We open the door utmost watchfully:

We’re shocked, distinct drops obscure, flying past

Thrashing winds push across unseen prairie

In full dark of night, invisible save

Rain and wet debris carried on concealed

Horizontal pathways streaming quickly,

Each helpless to escape or abate, to

Avoid penetration where possible

Under pressure, puncturing, carrying

Materials, matter, substance away.
