Before Dawn With A Puppy Named Sky

has the big dipper always dipped this piece
of the eastern expanse beyond my sleepy window?
and for how many moons was i not a witness to these stars
rendezvousing in some sort of Hellenic order 
conspiring to shore up the galaxy’s growing waist?
friday i brought you home. i named you sky
and remembered how cocoon-like and comfortable a
body feels at 4:30am in the backyard,
on the patio, before the 6:30 chill.

  1. “and for how many moons was i not a witness to these stars”–yes!
    Thoughtful, appreciative, beautiful conjunction of images.

      1. We are all set to have pets again, as soon as we close on our house in a couple of weeks. At least one cat and a puppy, I think. Is this what I’m getting myself into?

      2. I just did the same with another round of pets. One puppy and one kitty. They are a handful but also so happy. Good luck finding your forever pets! So happy for you
