TO SEE A STAR

A day spent at the stream

With Moondust

Infinities

And beyond

We will come back to the stream

 

To see a star

In its’ liquidity

In its’ depths

Of my heart

With Moondust

By the stream

 

Starry glimpses

Of futures’ laid

To travel

In many ways

Through streams

Through dreams

That can never fade

 

With the night….

The letters began to gleam

Upon the staff

What could it mean?

The way, home?

Could this be right?

 

I grasped the staff

Felt its’ mesmerizing power

And pointed to the stars

Numbers began to fall

In my heart

With startling rapidity

  

I remembered

When I launched an arrow

Of gold and brown

To the stars I felt its’ flight

The very same as on this night

 

High in the night sky

I saw

I felt

An eagle

With stars for wings

Such elation

That only I

Could see that constellation

 

The arc 

To travel

In my heart

In a night sky

To see

My constellation

See it fly
