Northern Skies


Around fading embers, adorned a canopy of maple, a chorus of frogs, grains of sand, footprints and an ancient yearning.  Deep, deep, I am lost in wandering thoughts and the eternal night.  The immortal Milky Way my only guide, illuminating pathways unchartered.  Reminiscently haunting, consciousness whispered in the wind, your thoughts drifting carelessly like passing clouds.  I found you today, in an autumn breeze, in a summer storm, in the crystalline form of a simple snowflake, in the beautiful pastel flower petals of spring.  Seasons, I miss the seasons, the turning, the spilling over, the changing, the permanence in the endless stars, that glitter brilliantly over these northern skies tonight.
