MAGNETISM OF THE UNIVERSE (4-7-17)

 

Virginids a week early

Or April’s Sigma Leonids?

Lift my eyes

To the skies

And there they explode

Into the darkness

Bits and pieces

Winding their way down

Into my net of stars

Floating atop my

Cauldron of warmth

Capturing the space debris

A gift for me

A wish

Whatever I fancy

Will appear within the year…

(REPOST FROM LAST YEAR BUT THIS YEAR TOO CLOUDY TO SEE ANYTHING)

Saw a fireball

Geminid meteor

Smashing through

The Eastern sky

Lasering Orion’s knife

Brightening the dullness of life

As the clouds cleared

And the breeze blew

Separating the trees

So I could see

Celestial beauty

In my backyard…
