S is for Sagittary

earth bound half-breed

risen to reverence

in the night sky



1. (Myth.) A centaur; a fabulous being, half man, half horse, armed with a bow and quiver.


I missed the boat for ‘S’ due to computer problems – but here it is finally.

  1. ‘Risen to reverence’ is a wonderful line. I have never before thought about constellations in this way before: as symbolic of what the earth-bound may be capable of. (Wheeling with the stars? To almost-quote a line from Pablo Neruda’s poem ‘Poetry’.) I won’t be able to look at the night sky in quite the same way again!
