11 Stargazer
The Dreaming -- That which is dreamed awake can live. I dare to dream the pieces of myself into focus that blur into the background. I find the courage to look into the future as I would make it and dream it into the present. Something innate and creative compels me to shine out brilliantly into the universe I swirl around my consciousness. I make my own destiny. I blaze my own trail. I walk my own path home. The ogham fid is Edad for vision and the tools we use to See.


STARGAZER // there’s a hole in your heart / in the sky, that’s a part / of the soul in your eyes / like the start of a life / in the stars, in the light / of the spark that was there / when you first looked up // there’s a tear in the dream / like a tug on the seam / that you wear far too snug / so it seems not enough / to be seen to be rougher / than gleams in the night / of that deep dark sea // stargazer / lie here with me / stargazer / what do you see? // there’s a gap in the place / between something and space / where the map has become / more the face than the sum / of the race that we run / keeping pace with a light / that has all but burned out // there’s a knot in the line / like a twist in the twine / where it’s caught in the mix / of the fried on the fritz / and divine is the wish / in the wine as it flows / when we’ve all but drowned // stargazer / lie here with me / stargazer / what do you see? / tell me // there’s a path through the woods / forking out from what should / and what has been the drought / of the good in the doubt / and what could have gone south / and what would have been better / if only for // there’s a mountain to climb / through the smoke and the grime / where the sound of our hope / cannot die in our throats / and the time we devote / to design and to love / only builds us up // stargazer / lie here with me / stargazer / what do you see? // tell me the story / of what we could be / tell me // stargazer / what do you see? / tell me //
