Stars seem captive tonight
held fast by their own gravity,
and so am I in thinking
that space would mirror me –
the freedom of my inward gaze,
all life is light, the eternal light
that fills the external void,
I close my eyes and see a galaxy
within, and that space is
the loving space we make
where others live and move,
that space is also freedom
and also love’s expression
thus love is also life as well as light.
The face of my youthful being
was mainly green and vain,
and with it’s passion came the pain
until it came to know a person’s
inside beauty,where so well hidden
it came to know it’s timeless age,
where an old man in time
hides his ageless youth.
