we slept under the stars last night

i tried to be there
eyes open to the stars
aching with the beauty
of night air and skin –
but sleep came too quickly
and i found myself walking
under the whispering stars
of that far away sky
until the earth underfoot
and all of me that was walking
glistened transparent
with the light of reflected stars.

i woke like that
translucent and alive
orion crackling above me
in the midnight sky.
