Above our heads

Above Our Heads

Jane Dougherty Writes

Above our heads the bright stars wheel,

our hearts’ wish steal,

and toss the husk

into the dusk.

The setting sun pours fire-red beams

in liquid streams—

our eyes closed tight

against the light.

In silhouette against the night

we, burning bright

and side by side

will turn the tide.
