DC: Stars

his desire guided him
to became a star
for his rosy planet


and on our planet
many of our flowers hold the shape of stars
(above: cosmo
below: thimble berry)

and even mimic
 shooting stars

starry centers (forget me nots):

lovely and healing arnica
has a center made of stars:

a friend this week sent me a poem, what perfect timing:

the unseen dark plays on the flute
and the rhythms of light
flow into stars and suns
into thoughts and dreams

R. Tagore
