SHEPHERD MOONS
(6/18/18)

some
are destined
for the
shadows

they may
guide

they may
teach

they may
mildly
influence

but they
will never
shine

never
dazzle

never even
dimly glow
themselves

their presence
will only be
divined
by the sublime
movements
of those
about them

minor
perturbations
in major
orbits

barely perceptible
wavering
of spectacular
spectral
displays

nothing
seems to exist
there
besides
the wondrous
light

but we
know
that the
dark ones
are there

we just
don't care

when the
heavens
are ablaze
with such
obvious glory
