They had watched
the heavenly dance
throughout long and lonely nights;
serious, methodical, no-nonsense,
categorizing each member
by color, size, and brilliance —
all facts and no fantasies.
Sitting in the assigned seat,
staring at the assigned section,
unmoving. Unmoved.
The stars celebrated,
swirling and sparkling above,
while the observers remained,
grim and silent, below.

one night
a light
the shadows,
their souls
with delight,
sweet, soft
in their hearts,
and the
to dance.

Epiphany blessings,

Deborah  ♰
