Day Two

“You need
In your soul
To give birth to
A dancing
~ Nietzsche

Day Two

The prompt for today was to take my gaze upward and write a poem about the stars. I found inspiration at a website that lists constellations while also providing information on the myths associated with each one. The poem is about my memories of an amazing weekend of August meteor shower I witnessed at the lake house a few years ago. Enjoy!

august sky

the kite of libra bright
in the northern hemisphere
dazzles the night sky
and sees the truth.
she weighs justice
and befriends dike, who is
the goddess of justice herself.
she judges souls,
weighs in the balance her own
and sees the truth:
she sees the eyes of her heart
mysterious and moving,
beating to the rhythm
of the dancing stars,
mirroring the meteor shower
in the August sky.
lost in the moment of wonder
she sees the truth,
and in a glorious display
of daring bravado
sends one of her stars
spiraling down toward earth
in a blaze of chaotic glory.

About cjpjordan

A poet, a writer, an artist, a thinker, a musician and occasionally a skeptic, when I'm not teaching or traveling, I love to read and write and play the ukelele. I'm loving life with my Little Wonder--his energy and joy for life is contagious. He makes me believe and hope again. I don't want to forget these moments that pass so quickly so I have decided to write them down for posterity and for you to enjoy.
