Pegasus

written by: Cindy Medina

Great Square of Pegasus
what might you portend?
Ascending the eastern sky
pierced by peaked roof;
unexpected mid-summer sight.
Four stars comprise you
Earth’s four corners echo.
Vast and desolate space;
graveyard of failed star stuff
or mere benign coincidence?
Pegasus — mythic winged horse;
war horses close behind?
Great Square: Heartless torso
ushers in Autumn’s chill;
may red-orange flames
be festive foliage only.
Ever-flying stellar beast
near heart this season,
ride on! ride on!
fate upon your wings.

 

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

The constellation of Pegasus, especially its asterism known as "The Great Square", and how it might relate to current geopolitical troubles.
