Just me, temporarily suspended
A one-eyed, limping razor billed gull
And a long-limbed chestnut foal
Watch the purple and silver sun
Rise like eastern-dream blossom
From ripple-free water.
None of us could see the stars –
They are extinguished by this
New god-candle –
But, between our heartbeats,
We could still hear
Their whispered prayers.
