milky way

moon dragonfly
skimming the pond
of an upturned sky
a flash of stars
our dream flight

pen poised
how to begin
to say goodbye
the empty rosebuds
of winter

how can I say
my part in this
one half sky
one half ocean
gravity’s quill

the encyclopaedia
we all wish for
to avoid the pitfalls
the cuckoo song

ocean star
loosening from sky
a ridge of light
the long horizon
to aim for
