ALIGNMENT



planets, and moon,

in a sky seldom clear to witness

an alignment.


Tonight, an alignment of

Moon,

Uranus

Venus


Jupiter

and Mercury--



An alignment not to be seen again until 2040.


Mars,

visible to the naked eye,

most like earth in size,

the red planet,

signifying blood of the warrior—

the most unknown part of me

and perhaps most needed.



Moon,

Luna,

goddess Artemis,

Bride of Sol,

fundamentally connected to ebbs and floes of oceans and

humans;

darkness of its far side

never visible from earth.

I, her moonchild in birth month and mood.


planets, and moon--

Uranus—Greek god of Sky,

grandfather of Zeus,

strong leader to


Saturn.

First planet discovered by the ancients—

In my sky now linking me to the past.


Venus—

Goddess of love and beauty.

Her name a sweet play upon my lips.

No planet comes closer to earth,

as it rotates in opposite direction to the others.

So alike am I in her presented shining and elusive darkness.


Stars,

planets, and moon--



Jupiter—giant planet with

centuries’ old storm upon its surface that roars

“I am the sky king”,

overseer of thunder and lightning.

master of frightening strength—


an “almost” star,

a timeless failure to ignite into its most glorious

akin to dreams I have had to put to rest.


Stars,

planets, and moon--



Mercury—

smallest planet

and nearest to the sun;

name of one of earth’s rarest minerals,

Greek god Hermes, protector of humans,

Conductor of souls into the afterlife—

Perhaps a traveler I have needed all along.
