Moonlight Makes Stars

Moonlight makes stars

on the lake

wind caresses water

to give them their shimmer

hillsides silhouetted

by the wordless song

of the setting sun

delicate yellow glow

in its wake

gently pulling night 

across the sky

the blackened stage

for a spiraling dance

of uncountable 

suns 

and moons 

and planets

This play

of light and dark

of fading away

and shining forth

coaxes

from the unfathomable

center of my chest

the love

that creates

it all
