IF I WERE THE STARS OF FIRE


If I were the stars of fire, 
I would dream of meteors lost in the night. 
I would dream of lost moons 
and wayward planets, rogue stars
wandering the universe. 
If I were hidden inside your heart 
I would make your dream this big. 
I would bring you courage 
bundled up in fistfuls of raggy flowers, 
or trapped on a long wave
approaching the shore 
with no other thought than the speed of dance, 
where the birds test the air with their wings, 
and the sky answers.
