- Fountain of flowing minds.

, by

My throat is filled with sands,
	And it washes like dew from honey,
		Crafted, Grafted.
	And it springs out like essence,
		Crested, Rested.
	And the water emerges from below,
		Quested, Untested.
	And the man rises from above,
		Selected, Perfected.
Jump!          So I did.
	And my throat is filled with sands.

Science Fiction/Experimental
, by

Look at the moon
	It is no place to eat
	It is no place to meet
		Lift your feet
			And gently greet
The shadow of our imagination
The figure of our temptation
	When the deepest carries the reckless
		The reckless goes helpless
Then,   It is to eat the place
        It is to meet the place

Dream of the Wild Horses
(Le songe des chevaux sauvages)

Denys Colomb Daunant

Le songe des chevaux sauvages
1960|France|9 min|Color|Live Action

- When fire and water thrive on each other!

, by

Tunnels  lights dim lights out lights off
a series of galloping  pounding  jostling
on the ground  meadow  track like never before
running  hitting  stopping at the same time.

Fire  eating swallowing digesting a small piece
seamless  seedless  speedless off the road
daunting at an angle  corner  moment's notice
whereabouts doomed to reveal  reverse  repeat.

Too late          the other end is all smoke.

The Thin Red Line, by Terrence Malick

- The look in a gal...

Sweetie, by Jane Campion

I was ready to buy some berries,
	And she stood there,
		Ready to buy some cherries.
I was either in the wrong aisle,
	Or hiding behind my scaries,
		For no other place,
			Would it like to be carried.
I looked around,
	As if I were in Buenos Aires,
		With her standing there,
			Ready to buy some berries.
