Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence

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

Solstice

This summer solstice
Golden sun’s prodigious eye
Aligns with flowers

Clouds

Kaleidoscopic clouds
Change from umbra to blue
My internal storm

For far too long I used the inability to be what I was in my youth as an excuse to not be the best I could be now. I’m not planning on getting back into dance or body building but this extra flab gotta go. I want to feel better in body and spirit so I had a funeral for my youth and am looking forward to the next phase ‘cause I got shit to do.
