NaPoWriMo 2015.2: Cancer

Stones at Barry Island Beach

Stones at Barry Island Beach

At a beach today, on the birthday of a friend no longer with us – so the stars/constellations prompt was brought back down to earth…

Cancer

If the Great Crab is here
beneath the grey-stone thunder
of this Barry Island beach

it has not been sent to distract us,
wave heel-nip, from any Hydra,
nor any singular heroic feat

but from these many-headed
days, always growing back:
these constellations of your space.
