CELESTIAL SIGNS
(12/3/16)

we divine
portent

omens

from what
we see
in the evening
sky

but astronomical
bodies
have no hint
of our existence

their light

or lack
thereof

only means
what earthy
beings
may attribute

so when Venus
almost nudges
a crescent Moon
near the western
horizon

I am reminded
only
of someone
I already know
beneath
their display

she sends me
her own
mysterious
messages
