Double High Fiving Orion (Reblog)

Navy blue Southern sky so reachable
Here he is tonight
Stretched out, over my head
My legs apart, as wide as his
Dog at my heels
Lift my arms and double high five him
Balance deserts as I fall into a terracotta pot of ginger
No dignity in old age
But my hands, for a brief blink of time, touched the stars

Reblog in celebration of Orion’s appearance in the autumn sky
