Tear on a sovereign on the finger of time,

the koala climbs clear of extinction. Like 
a clock with an extra pair of hands the 
mother measures her offspring's demands.
The moon emerges from night's twitching
wings this asocial bear will emerge in stages
from it's mothers pouch and be introduced
to the day sleeping regime.The precarious bond
between leaf and tree, koalas plight is a screen
for thieves and non believers. Trees confluence 
of dreams about creating an ark to save this species
of bear, fingertips of drowning men scrape the hull.  
Winds are powerless against wildfires, winter and
summers eyes meet in the window of a watchtower,
ghosts of casualties retreat seasons synergy will
complete the recovery.

An unusual work. I like it even more than I expected when the title appeared on the board. I think it's the killer last line, which works in ways I can't quite express, that makes this one a hit. I love it.
