Obeisance

When men were tempted to sin

you were hunting falling stars

breathing life into them and

guiding them to new light

Hesitant I stayed away

afraid, too much light

would blind me

but then you smiled

and revealed your wings

The stars shine in

an early morning sky

as if assembled in prayer

and I join them bowing

in gratitude
