Celestial Navigation

pillow plumed

cirrus schooners move

beneath a hollowed moon

as Orion swoons

disarmed by the beauty

of stratospheric foam

awash on the shore

of the known

and i hold dear

the tear of the night nova

whisper of burnished gold

mark the time, my love

with the curvature climb

our hearts foretold

Full moon tonight and some things are even too lovely for words. I tried.
