Stars, light brilliance

a gift , an obligation to shine 

deep brown pools of endless feelings

have their own glow

they sit close to one another

warm in the familiar breath they share.

blood shed her color of tears, binding

them, invisible threads sewing their dignity

remindful of vintage from a sadder place, 

crippled by thoughtlessness.

star light, star bright........
