The Three Stars
2002 Jennifer Lyon

Last night i did dream
Of two suns
And a star between
In a wooden house
In golden wash
I did climb the steps to find
In a room desolate
A great window that opened
To another world
Where the firs rose as giants
And lakes descended to depths
All was covered in white
But up above i was blinded by light
Two flaming suns
That hung from the sky
A burning fire
That cast golden light across
The depths and the towers
But when i squinted
And looked with priscision
I saw between
A star from the night sky
It twinkled white
And cast pure light
Though dwarfed by the living heat
On either its side
The power delved deep
Transcending my sleep
Leaving me tranquil
With mystery that was gentle.
