Adrift Solitarily



   Adrift Solitarily

 


It’s not hard


to stack 

cards


numerically 

 (by color


and suit-

ed generic-

ally)

 

 

 into patterns 

familiar and easily made

 

(heart, diamond, club, spade).

 

 

So much simpler indeed,


hypothetically,




than to choreograph


words 

plumb poetically


creating a singular treasure


(something new and unique


beyond measure).

 



But unseemly, it seems

(and so lame)

this persistent insistence

in playing a game

(… and one more…

and one

more…

and a score and one

MORE...)

almost pathetically

and unapologetically.

 

(I ought to be ashamed.)

Her Smile - La Lune


photo by PSC - Night Sky on 2012-02-25


Venus glows tonight
beneath waxing crescent moon
basking in her smile

I took the above photo on Feb 25, 2012.  
This evening, when I glanced out the window, I saw a similar sight -- which reminded me of this old poem and pic -- hence this posting. 

Tonight's sky is even MORE amazing, in that Venus is being joined by Mars.  You can read more about it (if you are so inclined), by visiting this site: 


ENJOY

And here's an addendum for 2015: 

(Sorry, no updated PSC photo available... as yet.)


Tonight Mars muses

between tremulous Venus
and beaming La Lune
