Prayer of the Stars


Stars whisper their prayers

Before dusk outlines the horizon;

Bathe in its perfumed clouds

Iridescent of sweetest redemptions.

.

They blaze forth like comet tails,

Coiled in gold and copper strings,

And shroud the world in infinites

That liberate our suspending faith.

.

We emerge fearless,

Glorified in their nightly escape,

Shining pale reminders in light of

What we once were, but can never retain.

.
