voyager

sailing the sea of an autumn sky
spinning unnoticed in its accustomed path
the great glowing globe that is the moon
never stops to rig its cloudy sails
letting them blow free as they will
untamed curtains that veil but do not hide
its brilliance
heedless of stars that like a school of pilot fish
swim close alongside on this predictable journey
it’s a clockwork procession ordained by an unseen hand
indifferent to all but the susurrous hymn of the sky
but even the moon
cold as it is
weeps to see the coming of winter
