The Moon//and what i saw in the clouds drifting by…

I saw the moon cruising across the sky, like a giant jet fully lighted but moving slowly.
There was a cloud nearby that looked like a Tyrannosaurus Rex moving towards the moon.
It swallowed it whole and never made a sound.
The moon came out the other end again full and bright.
But then there was a hen approaching from the right.
The hen was large and ate the moon, but not to worry.
For when she left an egg was born full and white.
And further still again approaching very slowly now,
A giant turtle drifing courtly. It swam below the moon,
As if to say, “I don’t want anything in my way, goodnight.”
