Connected to the stars
I saw you sleeping in the forest
Under hoary trees
With your overcoat on
The peace of cold clean water in your soul.
You slept with a clear conscience
In the house of your purity, your heart
Was sparkling truth
Your throat singing sweet chords of honesty.
I saw you, with long grey hair tied behind your head
Shaggy but tranquil
You kept my hair clip in your flannel pocket as a talisman
A message of love from the cosmos
And your dreams became sweet.
