A Poem by Abraxasbird

Even Stars, the overseers of life, must leave us be

A brisk distance quelled by a faint breeze whisking away 
A dandelion's wind-borne seeds, as my encroaching fingers finally clasp,
Nearly grasp those elusive things,
In a field, in  a medley of beautiful things all around me

Intertwined with my fate, arranged with ire
I glimpsed the light hidden behind the gait of a heavy moon,
Void was the night, though riddled with stars, wondrous from afar
glitter glowed, tracing its dance with such might
Graceful as a lark's swoon,
The way all these things faded from view,
Seemed reminiscent of you

Dancing lights you see.. 
In and out of view, like a broken camera lens
Like great portents of truth,
Intrigued me..

These ominous guiding lights, 
Whom forever watched over the lands
Without a slight, without a hand
steadfast, and quiet
Without demand

Gentle in approach, the overseers, calm from a distance
Leaving their imprints on the blue sheet mirrors that blanketed the earth
Inviting all who looked upon them into the ether
Beyond the horizons of our world

Sweet and placid your light
My dear sweet Aurora, in bloom in the garden of the night,
Whose pedals fell upon the great many of us
Shining brightly through the darkness

Like a jewel in the sands, 
Drowning in the dusts, the ashes of us
Those pedals fell,  with a persona all their own
Landing gently on a great many a cheek
With a kiss, a twist,  and alas said goodbye
