in the stars

02/07/2010

distant campfires perforate the night
yellow flickering points
communal centers for congregation
small groups huddled, wondering
What are the others like by the other fires?

connect the dots of these constellations
communities become nations
stories of love and war
made by these seekers of others
forging through the unknown black
to meet neighboring masses around hearths

offering firewood and hot drink from their fire rings
not all are met with welcome
but that is where the stories come from
passed down from generation to generation
a history etched through specks in the night
like Braille for the seeing for all to read
