Orion

Orion

A Poem by riskrapper
"

the great hunter returns to the northern sky

"


in the blue steel sky

where new northern

mornings arrive


and the stark chill

of predawn elementals

reign across the cycles

of timeless millennia


Orion stands, emblazoned

returned from a summer

season of hunting

in far off hemispheres


greeting old comrades

tied to the fixed points

of fluxing terra firma


with mighty sword

unsheathed and risen

to stalk the spare game

of a dire season


in seasons past

i too was once a

great hunter


i thumb the dull blade

of my ill used sword


commencing a search

of deep pockets 

for a stout heart, 

diligent resolve and 

a sharpening stone
