August Night

A clearing and warm earth beneath my feet
a view to the moon on the water
beside me tall trees, dark against the night sky
Reality has shifted
to shadows in the dream world
And I see – stars falling,
stars shooting,
the heavens are moving and
millions of years are now
in this present moment.

On this earth space
within this universe/star space
and somewhere there,
a human face looking back at me
with a smile

All the faces that I have ever known and loved,
the emptiness/fullness of love,
On these starry nights
when universes sparkle across time
Infinity is a continuum.
And I am at the edge of reason
this night late in August
I dream.
