against a black sky

blacker than any coal

Jupiter & Venus

side X side

Jupiter @ 12

Venus @ 3

2 diamonds

of night's

wispy dreams

watching

the entire sky

over

lantern on the bow

lantern @ starboard



the ides of march

Venus @ 12

Jupiter @ 7

after the rain

crystalline stillness

spirits of my ancestors

cling

to the pine trees

like dew

1 becomes

3

become 3

become 10



vernal equinox

Arcturus @ 12

Saturn @ 3

utter silence

n0 alphabet

in the cirrus

the earth

@ pax

the merest shadow

of a wish

with lacey lightning

star 2 star

dancing
