The Great Conjunction Haiku

Summer triangle

at winter’s solstice


For the next couple of weeks, Jupiter and Saturn will be drawing ever closer in the sunset sky. I strongly encourage everyone to go take a look but they’re very low in the west so don’t wait too long after the sun’s down.

Sorry for the Northern Hemisphere-centric haiku. I just noticed that the Summer Triangle of Vega, Deneb and Altair were pointing right at the two giant planets like an arrowhead and the poetry was too fine to pass by.

On an unrelated note, I’ve always thought that wanting to know more about a poet because you enjoy their poems is like wanting to meet a duck because you love foie gras. None the less, my friends at The Dark Sire, who published one of my Halloween poems last year, just posted an interview of me.

    “You assume I love poetry. Like all art, 90% of poetry is shit but when you read one of those 10% poems, it’s like injecting another person’s thoughts directly into your veins.”

    Loved that! 😊
