My feet bare on the cold ground
Like roots extending into the earth
This crisp, cold night with a sea of stars
Floating in the midnight sea above me
Intimately close as if I could reach out
And touch the silken fabric of the sky
Or dive in and swim among
The bright silver flashing scales
So lovely I could float there
Stars reflecting in my eyes
Sparkling in my hair like jewels
The same sky and yet equally,
Marvelously distant and serene
All that light, flickering, winking
Shooting across the night sky
And lodging into my soul
The cold can not touch the fire
Flickering in my heart
I am rooted, and yet floating, flying
Impersonal and intimate
Insignificant and immense
A meteor shower of love and power
I will never be able to contain
I don’t even try
