signaling the stars


there’s a dot-to-dot
dash bash going on
in the sky, a morse-code
cue that you
and i are now free
to shine.

look: a wish that’s
burned right on straight
through; a small soft mantra
of me-and-you that means
nothing and everything
in between.


It’s a Quadrille Monday over at dVerse! I’m hosting. Bar’s open! Come play!

  1. Wonderful.. love how you did this… the sense that in the end the stars will tell us nothing, but maybe in looking we can decide… great cue
