Heavenly Triangle ~ wayra sequence

Heavenly Triangle

Sol’s light on Gaia
casts shadow into darkness,
yet, in a brief conjunction,
leaves Luna as brilliant
when it sets as when it rises.

Gaia’s Demand

Shine your light my way.
Think not of her icy stare,
bestowed in her insolence.
Instead, illuminate
my daily pirouette for you.

Lunar Lament

Keep it to yourself.
I have no need for your shade,
cast into the darkest night.
This bond I share with Sol
will not suffer from your presence.

Sol’s Dilemma

How is one to choose
between beauties such as these?
Luna, with her nightly glow.
Gaia. So full of life.
May the heavens hold an answer.

I did not stay up for the 3:00am near-total lunar eclipse on 19 November 2021, but I did take this photo at 9:37pm photo of the full moon.  (click image for larger view in new tab)

  1. This is incredibly gorgeous writing, Ken! I especially resonate with; “Think not of her icy stare, bestowed in her insolence. Instead, illuminate my daily pirouette for you.” Yes! 💝💝

  2. An intricate, powerful ‘dance’ of words in battle. A very clever, original poem with such a beautiful start and play if light and darkness..

  3. Do we have to choose, really.
    Luv lunar’s words
    “This bond I share with Sol

  4. I like the triangle you created–its a good framing of relationships.
    When I got up at 3 it was still cloudy here, but when I got up at 5:30, I was lucky enought to see the last slice disappearing as the moon set below the building outside my kitchen window. An unexpected surprise. (K)
