ringing of the spheres



Magic: the ringing of the spheres


thin moon

wraps self in cloud scarves

skyscape pierced with

diamond studs

facets catch and refract

calm of refinement

waltz of night sky


punk rocker

raw power

halogen headlights

on full high beam

racing to the next gig

wah wah pedal on celestial amp


There have been my cosmic serendips – chance sightings of space junk re-entries and the de-orb of space station Mir. But it seems each celestial cycle, skies are shrouded and moons full, for meteor shows/showers such as the Perseids or the Leonids.

This year – the magic. Meteors without stiff neck and sore back. The magical “ringing of the spheres.”
