Moons

Sad:

A dozen

And more moons

Storm stranded

By jealous tides

“Do you know

Who I was?

Where I have been?

So casual-easy, the

Thunders and mischiefs

You most desire?”

Balanced between Beethoven and Thunder,

We are all Destiny’s children,

Walking – whether we know it or not –

Are claiming their once-bright souls.

Eve …

Thor,

Dark witch of thunder,

Bleeds for our distraction;

Sometime champion

Far away from the Rainbow Bridge

And ill at ease

In the sparkling peace

But we’re all going

To lose it one day.

He shouldn’t know it,

This head-down young charger,

Won’t know it until it ambushes him,

But his day is today.
