Since Most Stars Are Strangers

Let a white hoop
            be the horizon.
Let fir trees
            wimple and gleam.
Let wind set up a tremor
            it never abandons.

Seven left eyes
            of seven crows
wheel in a hubbub
            of dark jabber.
Wings overtake the day.

Let an elk take the sun
            away on its antlers.
            But only for a while.
Let the coat of a fox redden berries
            again, come summer.

Hope is that star whose place
            your eye can fix.
            You know it by name.
The largest room where you live
            calls itself sky.

--Paulann Petersen

  1. I like the sounds and astronomy. I want to write more about astronomy.
