The stars blanket the night symphony playing
The sharp notes of late summer.
The white streak across the sky a swathing
Path to eternity.
I wonder where it goes my eyes following into nothingness at horizon’s edge my dreams run before it into
Butterflies dance glorying in sunlight
Their brief lives playing out before my eyes swallows dip and dive over my head flashing overwater telling me shore is in sight
This long journey spanning lifetimes and I sit
Lakeside winging my way geese-like overland looking for a place to land
My heart already gone
