Eastern Star

 

Tomorrow’s journey

is born upon the breast, of yesterday’s dream

when the Eastern Star

rises upon morning’s shoulder

stretching and reaching, to purchase greater height.

And as its light climbs

the world cannot stand still

it turns and rolls in search of even more

while the Eastern Star fills the sky.

But the Eastern Star is no match

for forces of a turning world

its path, now becomes set in the West

and its light now fades to slight

while adding colors not found in its former eastern port.

As if almost suddenly

only minute fragments remain, to glimmer as light

as the Western Star fades, under evening’s watch.

Darkness

then begins to spread its nightly gown, upon the world’s floor

and now a different light begins to shine

light brought as twinkles from far away

and upon these stars people whisper and cast their wish.

From our limited view, it might appear

sometimes our guiding light disappears

but the night’s blackness patiently reveals

light is forever, and hope is near.
