Ancient Light

a field fringed

with brushes of branches, 

fingertip fronds,

painting the heavens

in incremental shades

of violet.

.

while the stars wink,

and metallic fireflies

streak the sky,

returning their call

flashing

green and red.

hundreds of hearts

thousands of feet above,

looking down,

as I gaze up

and back in time,

at ancient light.

.

in a meadow ring,

 at the top of a hill

i think

of the widening circles,

 and light,

and time,

and the North Star,

 compass

of the heart,

a beacon shining

between yours

and mine.
