how bold you are
your faint blue light
comes from afar
how shy you are
you hide among
a crowd of stars
most precious star
i long to know
just who you are
who knows what the stars can tell?
what fates are written there?
are clusters of stars full of truth?
is meaning hidden there?
in ancient times the wise
charted the heavens and believed
they found meaning in the skies
and prophesized from cryptic clues
a rising moon is full of hope
bright venus promises joy
a shooting star is our life foretold
what more do we need to know?
are you a small voice in the wilderness
or are you the wilderness
a storm in a teardrop
a jungle within skin
is your breath a gentle hurricane
is your heart a quiet howl
is your life an ever shifting round
of rain and wind and sun
do stars give you comfort
do they have the answers you seek
does the brightly whirling gyre
give your wild soul release
