Lighting the Fires Ahead

Waxing crescent moon tonight,

a sign from the Goddess,

a reminder of her love.


My body mourning

its energy chaotic, unruly.

Tonight the Draconids meteor shower begins

you, a rider upon them

I look to the darkened sky to see you

and wave farewells.


Rest well, Dragon rider

enjoy your new adventures

we remain here, earthly bound,

tethered to this physical plane.


Ride well, galactic explorer.

Lay the starry path

so that we may follow

in our own pace.


I will look to the Astrid grid nightly

to seek your compass and counsel

when I find myself lost.
