Between Light


A star had a hand
in our making.

Far-flung sparks
shimmer in us,

and faraway places
shine from our eyes,

recognizing
the sky at night.

A fire-wind
brought us here

and will take us back.
In between,

giving and receiving
what we have

no name bright
or deep enough for –

we call it love –
and trusting

our flickering lives
to a light we see

outside, which sees
and creates us from within.
