early in the morning
when the sun's still low
beyond the ridge
we were drinking coffee
boiled eggs and toast
when the light came in
and before me
figures forming

with the moon still low
a thousand eyes

and we looked up
a shooting star
there before me

in an instant
and before me
all around me
endless distance
in an instant
ah, light!
