153rd Weekly Poetry Contest winner: Meditation on a Twilight Union

by Miles T. Ranter

Luminous, numinous,
Venus and Jupiter
triangle-set with a
    scimitar moon:
soon they’ll descend into
stars will appear and the
    crickets will croon.

Vega, Arcturus, and
countless bright crystals will
quiver the heavens and
    dazzle the eye.
Journey your eyes to the
reaches of space and your
    spirit might fly!

Alpha Centauri, Ca-
Nopus, Capella: stars
    gave us all birth;
Ponder the chill of deep
space, though, your mind will then
    kiss Mother Earth!
