this long night

The Oracle knows where to look and how to listen.

we are all sailing
the same starry skies
in ghostflower oceans of eternity

ask how breath heals
the broken rhythm of the heart

remember to listen
to the foolish magic of children
lingering in this long night–
as if life is born again
dancing awake each morning
