Life, Star-Crossed

Through the stars I have tracked

a comet’s far-flung path,

spending light years out in darkness

 circling back into the light,

as close to the inferno as I dare.

Then swinging back out,

the glare at my back growing softer

until I can see untold galaxies,

my neighbors and fellow travelers.

Knowing each completion of my orbit

leaves behind more of me,

falling stars to wish upon,

until I become a whisper,

remembered in poetry and paint.
