    IN THE STREETS OF BABYLON

    Amber Moon rises
    in the clear crisp sky
    over Babylon.

    We look up
    hand-in-hand
    and touch the stars together
    wondering….

    The Lights in the sky
    The lights of the city …

    The light of the Sun
    brings the tireless march
    of visitors through the gates,
    marveling at the high walls,
    or just another day.

    And another day passes.

    Our children grow — we watch
    and having found their way,
    they seek their fortunes,
    climbing the cloud piercing
    towers of Marduk (Jupiter) —
    never thinking they could fall.

    We can only hope that they see
    from their heights
    beyond the dust
    what will last:
    the life behind the moment.

    Ninurta (Saturn-Time). Silent, ceaseless —
    a boundless river with seemingly no end …

    relentlessly transforming
    everything …

    everything.

    It flows another thousand years
    and it’s as if we were never here.
