Star Journeys: Vivace

.



It came down, in the end, to starlight...
dusted lashes blinking, 
eyes trailing intricate arms of galaxies, 
thinking with breaths of blood, 
eons of blood...
one second...one life.
Wait for me, 
I will meet you at the edge of dawn.

It came down, in the end, to starlight...
raised hands translucent, 
nails embedding tenuous holds
as universes streamed past...
the footprints...
one song...one time.
Talk to me, 
I will tell you of the edge of dawn.

It came down, in the end, to starlight...
etching flame-aura shadows
around ancestors, scarred and sleek...
for laws bound to the
beginning...the end.
Walk with me, 
we go to the edge of dawn.

And there, sit with our kind, the home
we always sought...
beyond the speed of sight...
in our hands the while...
there to greet us at the Door
forever open...starlight.

    Thanks so much for this wonderful view of greeting science as the dawn and embracing beyond. You didn't however choose the personification form requirement by the contest. It is still a good poem, I love the repetition and invitation of it, it is wonderful work, I enjoyed it. Thanks so much for entering my contest.
