Your Constellation

If I could configure
This feeling
As a constellation
When words fail,
And there is no music,
 The moon is slipping away,
 And a category 5 hurricane
Is about to reconfigure
Our understanding
Of how life emerges
From the impulses
Of heat and water,
Passion and forgetfulness,
This constellation
Would take the shape
Of a leatherback sea turtle
Swimming through the deeply silent sea. 

In that rare animal, I see you:
Strong, steady,

Mysterious, silent,
True, and

Gliding into a new day:
A story I can't completely follow,
A story that will go on.
