Orions Lofty Belt - Poem by Alan Reed

not to stride
upon the scorpion

A single star
hangs on
ample to clutch
the falling trousers of Orion

me in the night sky
Authority higher than I
there it cannot attack

lend me a sword
for my battle dress
as the night people stare

me gaze below
to ponder the city lights
search for answers

What with all the
probes darting the Arctic Lights?
the solutions are not here

Let me seek
from the Heavens looking down

    Enjoyed this, the extended metaphor that is strong and full of lyrical quality. (Report) Reply
