About the Poem
An online acquaintance of mine recently passed away. We were AOL chatroom hosts in a forum called the HUB, in a room called Urban Legends. One of the chats we hosted was a poetry chat called Urban Legends'Coffee House. It was a two hr block of guests' original poetry. When he passed away we had a special Coffee House in his honor, and this is the poem I composed in honor of Odain.

|The poet stands in a stream of fluid moonlight
Looking skyward, looking home
The poet's stance is purposeful
Gleaning the meaning of the moon beams
He sees the stars dancing their ageless dance
He longs to dance among them
He feels the comet's breeze
Brush past his face, and dreams of its wild ride
The Loving Being of The Universe hears his dreams
And reaches out to take him home
The poet stands among celestial celebrations
And whispers to us . . .
I am home.
