The night speaks in a chorus of stars, silences traveling light years

Of love and longing in distances, of a dark piercing amorousness

In the overarching shadows of dark; seeking an inquest for those extinguished flames


Living in my dreams, for the night may not end soon;

 Bonding of dreams and this night, awestruck in eternal embrace

The cactus bore flowers, the flower a thorn;

Drought bore a harvest when rains failed to moist.
