You could have a big dipper   

Earth Wonder by Olivia Onyekwena




you’d often tell me

to look for a sign up in the sky

except I can’t tell the days apart

each one moonwalking on blurred lines

into the next


meddling with the memories I save for later

the moon bay is a little different from before

scattered ashes like a sky explosion

this time, only in tiny twinkles of stars

and bits of the half moon

that escape definition

nonetheless, I already know what you are


since the first day I saw you, earth divine you were

the rain showers glossing over your majestic glory


like you own the world; which you do.
