That Dream of Stars

That dream of stars, spinning,
Moving above me,
Moving through time,
Tracing spirals in a rock,
One moon,
And again, two, and again,
A cycle of
Rising and falling
Grooves curled into stone
Marking the curve of the moon
The sweep of the sun
And where they meet
When the black sun
Bursts a rose of light,
Looking up at that
Black night
Studded with diamonds
Burning ice that
In their dance
And tell a story of time
With their weaving
Tracing spirals
Above my fingertips
Burning in my
I will reach for that sky
For that eternity ocean
The creation dust
That glitters
From the beginning of time
I will reach for that aching
Until the stars burn gold
