Astronomical Anomaly

Ivory, rose, cobalt,
The Northern Lights contest the stars;
The sky, replicating grass and blossoms
as if earth had become too promiscuous
for all except extinction… angels
long since gone to higher ground.

Sons born in Spring
seem stronger. That long season
of flowering no more than metaphor.
Earth also gives up her fruit…
in due time is reunited.
The axis is not fixed in space.

Precession
is the third discovered motion,
Dark comes quickest
on the Winter solstice,
Someday we’ll celebrate
converging rays.
