diction and dictation rock to sleep

a world with little love

for star-speckled elegance.

i hear you, constellation –

your song sounds of soft lace,

brilliance everlasting,

and time-proof.

she has been and always will be.

there was no beginning,

only the shine

of a head held high.

graceful steps among deities

make fools of even angels.

the best things in life

are pocket-sized.
