Spaceman's Pancakes

Subscribing to the Cosmic Snowball Theory: A few million years from now the sun will burn out and lose its gravitational pull. The earth will turn into a giant snowball and be hurled through space. When that happens it won't matter if I write this blog

Poem of the Day #9- 6/27/17

1 Comment


A waxing crescent-
The Moon- pale orange glistens
above the dark water

where our crab traps sink
beneath the surface, down, down
under the surface

just to be hauled
back up again, dredging up
passengers from another world

A place removed;
that knows little of the light
of that slim crescent

But is still pulled and pushed
by that distant orb, its phases
the rhythm of that life

E.H. Decker is the name of a pen, like Mark Twain, not A.T. Cross. Said pen belongs to a father of two writing between jobs on movies, parenting and obsessing over movies, tv, music, wine and words.
