Sirius Cycle Rise


as offered by Tess Kincaid

























as does the rise of Sirius say
cycling westward for day by day
just before the sunlit skies,
your Heliacal rise
draws forth all of eyes
on ropes these ones,
horizon's
edge to
play

This is super, Petrina! Lovely take on the prompt.
I made a series of egregious errors while posting my Mag 75, so I finally e-mailed Tess to see if she could fix it. I hope she can.
