Let’s go for a creek walk
you and I
and skip rocks across
the methane

and maybe we could picnic
in a spot with a view
of the etherized sun

that might as well be
sunset on a foggy beach
back home.

Let’s go for a creek walk
you and I
and turn over some rocks
that are not
gneiss, schist, or quartz.

but leave the bucket behind.
I’m not expecting to find crawfish
this time.

I’ve walked a lot of creeks
in my life

some with fast water
some with slow
some with no

and trust me

we need to check this one out.

Haiku I wrote for my 5,000th tweet honoring the Cassini mission to Saturn.  The haiku uses text from Christaan Huygens' "Celestial Worlds" (1698).  The wavy background made from picture of kimono fabric.
