comet

Comet in the sky

You smite me distant traveler

With some strange nostalgia,

Far away going away

Every night for a while.

 

Comet in the sky

Your light has tanned

My naked eye,

Touched my retina

With a new age,

Burrowed into my mind.

 

You surprise

Like a distant train

In the wilderness

Hurtling on its way.

 

Siberian crane

You fill me with compassion

For your lonely furious pilgrimage

To another millennium.

 

Visitor from another age,

Your searing glorious passage,

Primordial image,

Like a messiah come

To  disturb our settled equilibrium.
