I am Dawn
Traversing endless
Night
As the monarch
Migrates
With slow
But steady flutters
I have found
My way
Slow and steady
In this field
Of starry flowers
Coming to rest
Round smallest gem
Ceres
Listen while
I whisper back
All Ceres’ secrets
I am dawn
Small light
In endless night

Dawn's Arrival at Dwarf Planet
Dawn’s Arrival at Dwarf Planet*
