Can you run
along the star descent,
where the boys
have moonlike feet?
To enter the house of comets
and be dressed
with amethyst dust,
when the two suns
dive into the lake
and re-emerge
with the colours of a rainbow?
Can you fly without reins
on the wings of hope
when the night
wants to hold you close
and feel like a lake
in a stormy sea?
You know!
I do that every day.
That's why I love life
and life loves me.
