Lux

Forest-of-One-Single-Star

On a starless night,
no telescope to hand,
there you were,


a tiny speck of light
in a canopy of ink,
and now I find myself


wondering
‘What would it take
for you to cross the sky?’

The Navigator

Dad

You left much earlier than we expected,
the little boat slipping its moorings
and sailing on the noon tide.


Sorrow stood on the dock,
a small brass compass in its hand,
that we might find our way in the dark.
