Star Charms

Tie tomorrow as a string around my finger.

To remind me to look forward,

or look up, so I can catch the stars.

Hold out my palms and watch as they fall

one by one into my hands.

Create constellations along my fingers

until they glow with anticipation,

then use the flickers for a love poem,

or a love song of hands.

I will create poetry from the night

and wear them around my wrists

all day long.
