Spring Equinox, 1996

A sliver moon settles over the South Fork

There’s one lonesome cloud that hangs

Between the moon and the big bank

The moon disappears into the lonesome cloud

Only to slowly re-emerge briefly

Before sinking behind the black arch


A fresh Spring breeze whispers straight from the West

As the moon sinks – it seems to rotate downwards

Sliver of Fire


A huge planet pulses in the West

Jupiter? – Saturn? -- it doesn’t matter


I take my long eyes off the moon

And zoom in The Wanderer

It pulses like an explosion

It looks like something

That blew up oh, so long ago

In The Beginning

Sliver of Fire – Sliver of Fire
