I hadn't seen one in years              
slicing Libra's new moon darkness
to reveal Scorpio's light                 
I'd always wished for peace                
Universal happiness, Love                
some altruistic gift        
for the world            
Not this time;                
this time    
I straddled the flame        
rode bareback    
until we both burnt out    
this time I Believed                
in a miracle                
a financial windfall                
a country house modernized                
into open togetherness                
strays in need living      
out their lives healthy                
skylit art studio of                
drawing and photography                
walk-in tub for a Pirate                
and his mermaid to play          
in the lagoon of their island              
white barn wall                
for a movie screen                
'Pirates of the Caribbean'                
or 'One Night with the King'                
'Serendipity's figure eight              
'French Kiss' and wine, maybe                 
fire pit and over-sized                
flannel blanket, quiet                
under showers of meteorite                
Wishing nothing more                
for the remainder of days                
except to make a difference                
where hopelessness remains                  
For we, too, in this strange land            
once felt displaced as aliens
Italics reference, Exodus 22:21
