Stars

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

Reflections of yourself

Do you see yourself in me
When we walk amongst the leaves,
While we gaze to the stars
That blanket our home in soft light?

Fighting for a day

Fighters
United by a struggle
Empowered by love
Fueled by fear
To the sky we turned
In a moment of desperation
We begged the gods for repentance
We asked the stars
For a moment of light
We asked the night
For the day
And the day
For a little more time
