Hunting Stars

Ah, Orion.
How have you fastened
yourself around this vast sky?
out your starsongs,
stung us an ellip
a triple kiss
blown for future

  2. Triple kiss to you for using ‘belt’ as a verb. Way to belt it out, Orion.

  3. Snakypoet (Rosemary Nissen-Wade) says:

    Orion is my true love, since childhood — and I love how you play with him here.

  4. Belted
    out your starsongs….they do sing. Love this

  5. Kerry O'Connor says:

    One of my favourite constellations – I love the names of the stars that make it up – Bellatrix and Betelgeuse sit well on the tongue.
    I like the way you have phrased your poem as two questions to Orion in apostrophe.

    I love how you linked “fastened yourself” and “belt” together seamlessly. Quite wonderful.

  9. One of my favorite constellations to find and you’ve made magic of it! 🙂

    Love the triple kiss.
    Isn’t that what we look for?

  11. I like the “ellip” “sis” – the word break there. And the triple kiss.

    I, too love how clever you are! This is stellar~

    Orion and his belt always seem to stand out for me in the night sky–the hunter, forever chasing, is here fastened to his path–I love the connect-the-stars picture you’ve drawn here.

    two months back took the sons to Joshua Tree, on a new moon night, the observatory outside 29 Palms had serious ‘amateurs’ with their big scopes, just outside the small dome. One of the targets was Orion’s belt. cool pen, and a good reminder – time to get back out to the desert, to see the stars ~
