Sending Up the Pleiades

Sending Up the Pleiades

Oils on 40 x 50 cm stretched canvas (web store).

Sending up the Pleiades
from girls to doves to stars
in the night sky
didn’t lighten Atlas’s load,
or stop Orion’s chase.
It just gave guiding light
to millions trapped below.
This is how help comes
to us mere mortals.
Accidental, not trickling
but shining down at nothing
and no one in particular.
