A concert under the starlight
Under the night sky,
we walked, you and I.
The dim light of the stars created a halo around us
making us appear like ghosts with a form.
Our feet sank in the cool desert sand
as brown as the color of earthly human emotions.
Under the night sky when we were in concert,
we were mesmerizing, as the stoked up magic of a wizard
Moving up and down the slopes of the dunes
you confined my heart into the vastness of yours
and I held your gaze with my flickering eyes.
I still move about in the brightness of morn
but you have faded away as last night’s dunes.
The brilliance of the sun hurt my searching eyes
but my dimming heart propels me forward.
I walk like a monk, bereft of any possessions
but laden with a hope to walk with you again,
as my wish transforms into my faith
we walk, your memories and I, and
the earth-shine illuminates my heart.
