Night Voyager by Neil Ellman

(after the painting by Richard Pousette-Dart)

A shadow passing
across the moon
celestial bird
directed by the stars
I am a voyager
in the space between
your world and mine
I no longer live
in either one
alien to your light
traveling at its speed
you the sun beyond
the promised land
where we can never
meet again.
