We are the star…

We are the stars, who sing
from a distant place.

Yes, you are alone in your orbit,
as we are.
Yes, your light burns fiercely,
as fiercely as ours.

The thin wind of loneliness
may howl around you,
suck the breath from your fire.

But look before you
and behind you.
Look above you
and below you.
See how many other hearts are burning,
burning as brightly as yours.

We are the stars.
We sing with our light
in our vast, brilliant constellations:
alone,
together.

Joyce Sidman. “Blessing From the Stars.” What the Heart Knows.
