Poetry by Robert Stone: All my wonders dancing

All my wonders dancing: a word list sonnet
by Robert Stone
I知 slanted downward, rapidly cascading
not brahmacharya new but troglodyte.
I知 winnowing my misconceptions, wading
with trepidation dancing to good night.

I知 trying once again fresh avocado
from slant without and also with cascades
of peppers, trepidation, and bravado
prepared right at my table no charades.

I知 trying not to show my troglodyteness,
embracing brahmacharya best I can.
I知 looking at my life before the brightness
my misconceptions bake into hard plan.

I hope the good need not be winnowed too
so all my wonders dancing form last view.

~ Robert Stone, 9 September 2017
Word List: avocado brahmacharya cascade dance fresh misconception slant trepidation troglodyte winnow

Jon Halsey, Knifley, KY, recalls once-in-lifetime Blimp ride

In his boyhood days three hours west of Ft. Wayne, his dad, chief meteorologist at Baer Field, facilitated a ride in a Goodyear Blimp. The experience would never be forgotten. But would he go up again? The answer is in within the fascinating story, below.
Comments re photo 74612 Goodyear Blimp Misses HGR Fall Festival by two days

By Jon Halsey

Because the area outside of Ft. Wayne, IN where I grew up was about three hours due West of Akron, Ohio (at least as due as a distracted Crow would fly), Goodyear Blimps were a frequent distraction.

"Back in the Day" - it must have been circa 1952, give or take a year - I hitched a ride on one of the Goodyear Blimps.
