Star dance

The Daily Post prompt is: radiate.


From the cracks in the sky,

light radiates,

a web of star points,

keyholes to eternity.

Come the day,

suffused with pastels and petals,

I see the starlight in water glitter,

dancing the same dance

as in my childhood summers,

leading the way,

step by precious step,

into the star dance

of the last long night.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
