Perseus - Poem by Gary Hammontree


Sitting on my porch watching the night sky

as a backdropp to the pines and palm trees,

their black silhouettes against
the slate blue gray of the night.
Across the street a truck glows silvery-white
reflecting a neighbor's porch light as
the Big Dipper, tilted, spills its contents.
A small meteor streaks, glowing briefly
then evaporates into the night.
Another and then another glowing, stream past
my view, as Perseus throws his
fireballs across the summer night.
