swimming in stars

Mosquito Bay

the moon comes he says
in tones that rise and fall,
falling stars will then hide
what now circles all around
glistening water, luminescent
trails behind like wings
dark, the little boat bobs
sways the tidal dancing
direction becomes lost as
downward the upward shining
swimming between the stars
an ethereal welcoming home
