star of soliloquy

star of soliloquy

opened the door
at dawn
to let the
cat out
trying to
sleep again
the stars
i glimpsed
in that chill
block of sky
stayed under
my eyelids
one shone
like water
pebbles in a
stream how it
thins and deepens
onward in passing
over them
a wonder that
never quite
breaks to the
a wonder
in passing
our passing
in wonder
star of
we follow
to the end
of voice
of soliloquy
that takes
us down
to sleep
in the
so deep
