Copyright Spring 1982. Yeah, a blast from the past. I wrote this poem inspired by a poster that used to hang in my room. It was one of those black velvet deals [hey, it was hip at the time] with Pegasus flying through space. I still think of that poster a lot, it inspired so much wonder.
The poem is an inexact rhyme. Video by: M. Pax
Sailing on a comet’s tail
the spinning sun zips by
singeing careless strands of hair
enchanted by its light
S c a t t e r e d pieces of glitter
stain the endless black
pouring through the Milky Way
into the limitless I seek
Tripping over Saturn’s rings
I stumble from my ride
To take a tumble on the Moon
to land on Pegus’s back
~ we cry ~
Lifting wishes from Orion’s belt
while drifting on their sighs
I clasp one tightly and begin to dance
with wistful nebulae
