For You


                                            From the Hunter's belt
                                            I picked out the middle star
                                            and named it "For You"
                                            For its light's pure as your love
                                            and prey to your heart: I am

    I am so tired with tanka about cars, or tanka about writing(?), tanka about trick or treating, CNN....

    The middle star of Orion is not a star, but a nebula called the hunter's sword. The images of sword and prey (connoting "pray") made this love poem revolutionary and dangerous

    Oh, so like the hunter/prey play! Awesome. Hope you are well. Damn, sirens are just wailing right now. I hope she stays asleep? Sigh... YES! Oh, whatta long long long day. If you're not writing much, no worries. It's like a chef going shopping for the freshest fare. We need to fill our coffers with sun, company and idleness before giving ourselves over to the solitude and perma-mood of writing. Cheers, chum. :) Cyndi
