Vectors at Midnight (Acrostic + Cinquain Swirl)

A personification of the midnight sky.

Veiled life

Enchantress – she

Chains me by sacred root

Threading needle – sanctuary

Octaves

Rise above the

Satellites, scattering

Across the frost covered twilight

Timeless

Mountains shadow

Iridescent futures

Defending powers of the moon

Nature

Incites the call

Giving unto cycles

Heavens exploding in all their

Treasures.
