Constellation Name

Constellation Name

written by: Rando Mithlo


Before dawn she saw these lines
A constellation of a name
Cut across fields laying shade
Scatter through blood and decades

Through the eyes of fauns
In a vision found a place
Twin streams run converging
At a point untouched, unnamed.
There partnered with an old sun
Perfected mixes in the wild
Combine the cirrus and red cedar
Flight of birds for years to come

In flashes the storms swept
Thrashing leaves and turning soil
Split another shadow from hers
What’s left as is existing
See through oneself reflected
Her face forming many
What fork what path chose
Mostly hidden in the trees
