Stellar Minx

Stellar Minx

celestial rocks break free

from intergalactic rides

streaking in their final blaze of glory

across charcoal cajun blackened skies

sprinkled with shimmering stars and planets

giving us pause to marvel

at what we romanticize as falling stars

are nothing short of amazing

but meteors cleverly disguised…

Royalty By Cosmic Design

lifting her one pale green
and one actual brown eye
to the celestial bodies
that hung in abstract
locations as if
dangling from
black velvet sky
never had she seen
so many stars before
her road weary eyes
that she hung her
head out the passenger
side window like a child
seeing fireworks from
afar for the very first time
if only this were her
very own planetarium
with stars at her fingertips
wistfully released
a contented sigh
whereupon she identified Cassieopia
I’d be heir to the throne
of the Egyptian queen of big sky.

Twilight Falls

Twilight Falls 

Sunbeams kiss day leaves

shimmering on lush reds, golds and russets

rippling like sun-streaked ocean waves at sunset

final rays of sunshine fade

vanishing into twilight

where celestial bodies sparkle and twinkle

awaiting the grand entrance of the moon

as she positions herself into the plush, black sky

bringing with her a mystical hush

that will silence the earth around her

leaving me alone in the world

to sit on the swing watching,waiting,

pondering inquisitively

in reverential awe

yearning for the first falling star

to leave behind its trail of cosmic dust…

Star Struck

Star Struck

two lovers set sail

on moonlit seas in search of

that one star that shines

for those who believe that their

love true, is made of star dust…

It Ain’t A Happenin…

It Ain’t A Happenin…

they bombard us with

hatred, racism speak

yet some concern themselves

moreso with their potty mouths

which will eventually

evaporate into a black hole

deep into the chasms of space

but some act as if they are saints

with claims, “I could never”

professing virginal ears

but their xenophobic tongues

hang like that third leg

tucked inside of their white

fresh linen underwear

with a stench that

permeates, strangling

the air we breathe

so pungently

when you realize

ain’t no way

that’s gonna happen

they can’t promise that

because leopards simply

cannot change their spots

and that is that…

Dénouement

Dénouement
In no amount of time
i shall find that you have
become but a small stilled voice
a mere blip in the universe’s chaos,
fading off into some surreal
yet distant sunset
ultimately finding stardust
leaving behind your cosmic trail
where in the continuum of space
you shall set sail
and infinitely be free…
