Twilight Legacy

Orion, Pleiades, and Ursa Major

wink at us from heaven’s ceiling.

Mother taught me their names and folklore,

my sons were also prey to their charm.

Her nocturnal lessons are being passed

to my young granddaughter.

I lift her high and imagine Mother

waving from the Milky Way.
