The Quiet of the Crescent Moon

Field Guide to the Constellations:

Each glowing light, a bit of yesterday
or 10,000 nights
or 10,000 light years ago.

If you choose to remember,
the past is always there.

Just look up-
there lies Cassiopeia Hercules Cygnus Draco-
string them together,
wear them as a crown.

Crescent Moon and Venus 8-2012
