Burn for You


The stars in the sky

burn for you.

Every one in kind

shining through

the darkness of your mind.

An enlightened view

that illuminates you.

The light wants to know you,

wants to learn its way around you.

Touch you like you touch the world,

not in spirit, or in sorrow.

Light has no face of its own,

except when it resides inside of you.

You are a light, too.

You and the stars are siblings.

Every light in the night

is an intelligence, burning.

Every dawning of the day

is a mind waking.

Turn your face towards the light,

and do your best to spurn the darkness.

Let the light

in you

burn hot,

like the stars burn for you.
