Diamond Eyes and Fireflies

do you still stare up

to the star filled

sky

vast and open

glade

in the forest of

night

do you lose yourself

in the endless

ocean

weight of body

anchored

while the spirit

swims free

are you reaching

beyond the atmosphere

to the cold

vacuum of space

plucking diamond eyes

from its formless

face

gather them

in a jar

as brilliant fireflies

and keep them

close

keep reaching
