Meteor Showers

Meteor Showers

 

The year grows late, the season, chill.

Please, meet me by the garden gate   

(after midnight – if you will).

 

The darkened sky, (light

gone truant, you’ll soon find,

pursuant to a new moon),

will form the perfect backdrop

for the treat I have in mind.

(If I’m late, please wait –

I’ll be there soon.)

 

La Lune may be lacking, but

the Geminids might join us   

(barring inclement weather).

Mayhap, we’ll all bide ‘til dawn

and shower together.
