Stone

Adrift in the clouds
What are you moon, cheese or stone?
Glowing talisman

Neowise

In the soft early hours of the whippoorwill
The gleam of Earth’s temporary guest
Winds through our solar system
Its furtive tail rising above the tree tops
Hazy at first but growing more luminous by the minute
A race against the very sun that gives it measure
Your awe inspiring journey to places only imagined
Now the making of a magical morning for this earthling
And as you fade into the dayspring I bid farewell
-See you again in 6800 years

Ball of dust and ice
Hurtling through space and time
Another comet tale

Back to stardust

Contemplation

My contemplation
Of all life’s impermanence
Stars subtle decay

Firelight

Snuggled in sleeping bags
Under a starry canopy
We whisper sweet nothings
While the campfire wanes

Spark

Summer Sparks

A crackle in the stillness
Of a hot humid night
That spark of beauty
Illuminating the darkness
A billion grains of sand
Against a billion stars
Spellbinding in its power
Both creator and executioner
A not so quiet reminder
That the universe is bigger
Than even sentient beings can grasp
And any sense of control
Is but an illusion
