Dawn Sky

I rose at dawn today as usual
to sit in silence outside
only to be flooded
by the silver white shine
of a full moon
descending to the west.

Captured, captivated
by this caress,
I stood and gazed,
light of body and spirit,
till the moon dipped
behind the rooftops,

only to notice
the dimmed Dipper,
overhead distant Saturn
and Venus rising regally.

Then to the south,
brightly still,
hung the pearl necklace
of the Southern Cross.

And I thought of you.
I still do.
