Southern Cross for dVerse Poets

Southern Cross

Spread low on the horizon,
stars stretched on a rack of sky.
Star-crossed lovers that we were,
standing sternward at midnight,
sea spray whispering our names,
sleep sacrificed for starlight,
secure in each other’s grasp.

For dVerse Poets: Pleiades Poem. We are to write a Pleiades Poem. 1 word title, 7 lines, each 7 syllables beginning with the first letter of the title. Photo by Jeremy Thomas on Unsplash, used with permission.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.
