Nomad

He is a wanderer, my teacher and protector. I am spellbound. Stories of leaving his mortal body, stepping beyond the constraints of gravity. Adrift on solar winds among worlds beyond the Horsehead Nebula.

my childhood nights
dream-catching
moons—
a bee flitting
between blossoms

Now I roam the heavens towards the rim of the celestial dome.

from pin dot
to bright pin dot
the hunter
searching
for star spore

alone between
glittering fireballs
I skate
luminous waves
and frozen comet rivers

where angels sleep
and gods hold court
directing
hands still painting
the universe fresco
