Throwback Thursday: Under Orion

Hello Orion, old friend.
So nice to see you again.

Orion says, “I watch him sleep.”
I smile, say “So do I.”

“What is it that you
think he thinks?
Should I ask?”

Orion says, “Try.”

“Does he sleep in peace?”
I want to know.

“Of that, I’m not so sure.”

“If only he’d let me,
I’d search the earth
for his restlessness
night’s cure.”

Hello again, Orion,
old friend, what news
have you got for me?

“The sun will rise again,
my dear, and you’ll be
there to see.”

“Which is that I seek?”
I wonder, “The truth,
or the lies?”

“In his eyes,” Orion says,
“They both lie in his eyes.”

Every time I notice Orion in the sky I murmur, “Hello again, Orion old friend. What news have you got for me?” I didn’t change anything here actually. It’s probably one of my all time favorites.
