Falling into the Stars in Daylight


Falling into the stars
in daylight
I hold my skin
knowing my heart
is too open
my surface cannot hold
keep it safe
from this giant leap
that questions who I am

Still I would jump
across this mote of doubt
leap into this intimate meaning
give spur to the pounding race
across the plain
in search of destiny
if I could but know
an answer
that survives the tumbling

This dangling has me drenched
breathe me a purpose
that keeps me mighty
in ropes of words
for I am
falling into the stars
in daylight





 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.
(ee cummings)
