Victor

I walked
where city lights
conspired to
eclipse the stars.
But, Lord! Hung high
above them all,
pulsing in the southern void,
there burned
the fiery mountings
of Orion’s
thrice-nailed belt.

From ‘Nature’

  1. I love the imagery Dafydd of pulsing, fiery stars so clear above the ordinary street lighting, as if the eternal blacksmith had hammered them in their places, sparks and all! I enjoy searching for Orion and his beautiful belt! Diolch am rannu.

    1. Thank you, Gill. I have to post a few quite short items for the next few weeks – and ‘Victor’ is very short indeed! Your imagery is striking, too – ‘as if the eternal blacksmith had hammered them in their places, sparks and all!’ That’s lovely. Got to love Orion, standing so bravely up there.

    1. Thank you, Jacydo! One for the star-struck (may their tribe increase) 🙂 I have to post short pieces only for the next four weeks or so.
