Star Shot - Poem by Anthony Burge
Bed coral sands of shell grit white
My eyes trace flares through squid ink night
Flights of friction sparks ignite
Shooting stars die burning bright
Black whale black sea torn by her breach
Into night sky far from lands reach
She looks to stars to take her bearings
Does she too see the night skies flaring?
What of the Saratoga that scans the surface
The green sea turtle drawn lunar purpose
The wild dog howling at the moon
Frog song from lily pad lagoon
Braying bullock from wetland bog
Answered by the barking frog
The wallowing sow with young at heel
Do they too see night sky surreal?
Star-shot the sky celestial lights
Ignite the moonlit sea at night
