TILT ECLIPTIC
(11/11/11)


walking east
watching
as the setting sun
oranges
then reddens
the foreground

a full moon
and Jupiter
brightly rising
in tandem
above the trees

the solar
community
can easily
be felt
in the clear
darkening
November sky

Sun
Earth
Moon
Jupiter
all describe orbits
and relational
positions
in the mind

instead
of feeling
lost
in all that
space
our neighbors
seem
so near

a comfort
to dispel
all that cold
blackness
just a few
miles above

and
an infinity
beyond
