one big trailer park in the sky

the floating RVs  (trailer nacelle)

soft-nosed juggernaut blimp trailer or
hard  Airstream  dirigible  :no  more
the count of axles  but of
hydrogen cells :  gold- foiled
silk ,rippling  and

cheap dishes  of light-weight  ceramic

 instead of
concrete pads and low hedges we now have
  a forest  of towers

              peeking  between  conifers  and  we live
above the gentle breeze from the septic field, wake
  to the gold-blue glory  above the clouds  and
      toast  (and tea)
      in(to) the future's    sky
