Orion The Hammer

Every time I look up and see Orion

I never see a guy holding a bow

Instead I see a hammer that is giant

The kind of thing that Thor would probably throw


Everyone is looking for the meaning

Of random stars sprinkled thru the skies

The secret is there really is no gleaning

How we live and love and when we finally die


But that doesn’t stop people from wishing

To know the end before the story's told

Like eating your catch before the fishing

But we have to wait to see our tails unfold

Eric Miller is a writer living in California.
