Issue 54 – Fantastic Skies

Aerial city
Safe from almost all dangers
Except… dragons fly…

By DJ Tyrer

Cloudtown
By Harris Coverley

city in the clouds—
forever cursed to look down
on the world its lift-off charred

Thunderbird
By Anna Cates

Wind rushes through the desert dawn.
Lightning bolts from heaven’s vault.
Gracefully, the thunderbird glides down.
Wind rushes through the desert dawn.
Wings unbreakable, gleaming brawn—
Acrid smoke, rainbow lights—then it’s gone!
Wind rises through the ravaged dawn.
Lightning bolts to heaven’s vault.

A Recasting
By David Edwards

Listen to this sordid tale
of a dream that never fails
to rend my every sleep,
however shallow or deep.
Fairies take me on their flights
up to castles in the night;
floating on candles of doom
without departing my room;
mysterious skies traverse
with ungainly stride and verse;
celestial voices sing,
then meld with alarm clock’s ring;
a traveler’s weary yawn
introducing each new dawn.

Dinner Plans
By K. A. Williams

A great winged shadow
Villagers flee in terror
Dragon prefers fish
