If We Did Not


NGC 6744 Hubble, NASA, ESA, and the LEGUS Team


If we did not wake to lingered mornings

and flowers dancing to celebrate

a day opening,

voices with colored breath laughing

to heal the sad rhythm of haunted nights,

we would listen for stars’ fevered breath–

remember time sailing

The Oracle was full of words and wonder today.
