The Stars Sigh—
By Penny Wilson

Moonbeams at my back
I sweep stardust
from my eyes

Once inebriated
with thirst
with lust

Now Firefly in a jar

The once resplendent blaze
feeble
weak

Longing
for lustrous heavens

To light the way home

Chill of night
permeates
spent loves
spent lovers

The stars sigh
resigned to their fate
