we are gathered by starlight
each time we commune with the night
they hold our eyes
as the focal point
of where the heart never ceases
to want to be...
somewhere beyond the limits
of our sight
where awe bleaches the Unknowable
into brilliant light...
none believe this but fervently wish it
bathed in the dim shine of the stars...
so soothing after the exasperating day
of molten sunlight that scatters us...
