when starlight
having travelled forever
falls on the retina
cascades through the circuitry
renders visible
the beauty around you
open your eyes

we are sunlight
and the dust of the stars
caught in sunlight

those worries
you think you think
are only
creases in the sheets
read a poem at least
or write one with your
gentle smile
