Dance of the Fallen Stars
Elaine Wilburt (bio)

The beacon flashes
yellow-bright
above
the grass
disappears
darts in
the boxwood hedge
shines a faithful call

like Portland light
signing to those
afloat
toward
its harbor

The light flames
yellow-bright
beside ash bark
circles
reappears
in
swaying limbs

winks for a partner

like a hearth fire
murmuring
come
to
me

The lights glow
and glow
around
the leaf tips
appear
waltz
together

glide skyward

like winged stars
blinking
gleaming
back
to heaven
