perseids

clouds swaddle the sky
and hide that streaking
this mind knows to be
mundane comet dust

while the soul yearns
for magic, past logic
to net & jar celestial fireflies

for a moment
flashing codes for wishes
woven between stars

& melting into
that  milky way haze

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    I was out last night…the 11th and 12th supposedly the best nights to view…alas clouds on the one and not a sign on the other. supposed to be around until the 24th if you do get a chance.
