ORION

ORION

A Poem by Ang Boyce
"

When I worked late into the night the constellations were friends to me and I could tell them of my innermost desires.

"

ORION

 

The night I sat upon the highest hill and felt my soul,

I thought of you.

I thought of love just passing through.

I gazed upon the city below,

And how it buzzed from head to toe,

Then I thought of you.

 

I looked in to the darkest sky with the huntsman's gaze upon me,

I thought of you.

Orion's constellation glow,

To the end of earth would slowly go,

To make his way back tomorrow,

And to my soul I felt a pang of which I can only tell is sorrow.

Then I thought of you.

 

My protector and provider be,

Of things I love but never see,

I thought of you.

And on that hill where time stood still,

Orion did promise a me a soul to fill.

Then I thought of you.

 

I gazed at the jewels upon his belt,

as they shone radiant in their order,

I thought of you.

I wished upon a shooting fellow

which passed him by so swiftly,

I made a wish and to my soul did wish it very deeply.

Then I thought of you.

 

Then I thought of you just passing through,

A huntsman for my Isis

I thought the wish and had it to,

That may you never meet a crisis.

May love possess your beautiful mind and guide you to only what is good.

May Orion provide you always,

With the necessary food.

Very nicely penned. To me, I am sitting on a hill top staring at the night sky alone, because the love in my heart has abandoned me and I feel that it waits somewhere in the vast expanse of the universe. Memories still find me for I can not hide from my thoughts, yet I experience a momentary distraction in the beauty of the constellations

Stars in the night sky - the cusp of summer evenings late and eyes scanning the rising horizon Orion and Isis - a mythic coupling of ancient wisdoms....truly poetic
