Orion’s belt

NaPoWriMo day 24 is inspirational: Write a “mix and match” poem, mingling fancy and not so fancy words, to make the everyday seem poetic and keep the poetic language grounded.


I look up and try to think of the mightiest word
to describe the multitude of stars in the firmament
Heaven’s own navigation lights for lost sailors to find their way home
I know I always feel safe seeing Orion’s belt in the night sky,
still in line, Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka
I smile wryly at my own thoughts and shiver a bit
It will be colder tomorrow
I hope the tomatoes will make it this year
