Sirius' Song ©

Sharon Lindeman
New York, USA

Darkened twig
        entangling sky,
cracked as whip,
        winter's demise,
starkly struts
        unbending limb,
cracks and breaks
        in brittle wind.

Black etched darkness
        engraved in sky,
traced in magic
        darkness flies,
beyond light's grasp,
        alchemy of wind,
horse and rider
        ride again.

Rooted roots
        where darkness lies,
deep within
        earth's sunken trove,
can elements
        destroy the lair
of the fairy
        travelling there?

Night's eye calling,
        vision's veil,
release magic
        in the air,
sparrow sleeps
        so silently then,
waiting for whispers
        to begin.

Softly sung
        the song sounds dim,
distantly awakening
        one who's heard,
softened sounds
        of Sirius' song,
awakening earth
        to summer's dawn.
