Watch the Twinkle - March 28, 2021

look up some evening

past the curiosity of night

beyond the moon’s stare

to the distant stars

some that shine brightly here

are cold black cinders there

love too is a seen glow

but how do we know

if it still burns passionately

at its source?

one clue is the twinkle

watch one eye to see

how much darkness

tangles with the light
