solstice

A heavenly dance

Bathed in a sacred starlight
Carrying nothing but light
From the solstice you were born
From light we all drew breath
In night you disappeared
As you hid beneath the whispers
And lay amongst the stars
High above
I found you dancing
Upon a gilded floor
Sculpted from love
The dance floor of the muses
The dance floor of the heavens

Clouds abound

A face formed in the sky
Above a season of stillness
Even the trees wept
With hollow cries
From decrepit leaves
Only the solstice
Could breathe fresh life
Into the eyes of the sky
