Across a velvet backdrop stars hang like crystal
softly glowing candles that wax and wane with
the out breath of  sighs.
Dislodged,  they plummet over mountains
vanish behind the  horizon or plunge into the sea.
I am like the tide,  hostage to the moon,
tumbling ashore or as  still as tide pools
until the heat of night inflames my primal heart
come out –  ignite
  be the fire.
