OctPoWriMo Day #30: (dancing on the moon)

Word prompts: ecstatic, exuberance, joyful, celebrate, on cloud nine

Let's just  say that today's poem about joys and ecstatic beauty is fueled, as often is, the sadness that precedes it. I actually wrote a Pleiades, a 7-line poem with 6-syllables in each lines; based on the Greek Myth of the Pleiades, the seven sisters of Atlas and Pleione. It is also a star formation made up of about 500 stars, although only 9 to 12 of them can actually be seen and only 6 at a time.

I'll let the poem speak for itself. Dear Readers. Enjoy!

A Journey Begins...

Somewhere beginnings are
full of ecstatic joy,
leaning heavily on
knowledge that came before.
I know that to begin
there is sadness behind
celebratory steps.
