Cosmohydraulics

Some old idea echoes
Amid stars, rides
Nightfall down and 
Rapids into sea.
An illusive light
Of things to be (f)rollicks
In our destiny.

  3. I hear frollicks on the last line (beat after 'be,') and wonder at the 'k.' http://www.frollicks.com/#/home

    No, srsly, in the music of these words, I read the last couplet in a traditional way and like that my mind's ear slips on your time twister in such a fashion.

    1. Cheese crisps aside, I too like letter 'k' --it's one of those diving-board consonants that springs me into vowels. I'd use 'k' even oftener if I kould.

    1. Both frolics and rollicks rhyme with Cosmohydraulics. Had to do it.

  9. It might sound daft, but for me, everything comes back to water. The idea of cosmic water is far more appealing than thermodynamics of vacuum. A pleasure, Sir.

    1. Thanks, Indigo! I too am happy to be a bag of mostly water and not a vacuum.
