You are a star
for me and all the troubled times
that labor so to bring to birth
that being, love and meaning of the earth.
Your starlight guides and lights and sees
the core, the struggles, and the dross of these.
And from the pain you undergo,
which we can never truly help or know,
such beauty springs
as brightens, nourishes, and heals
the heart, and mightily reveals
the artistry of how in us and in all things
the earth and heavens interlace
in one all-changing, wonder-blessed embrace.
