Conversations in the night

Stars sneer aloof down wanderers in walk
Through memory archways, on pathways of dirt
Those guides flare vexed by the twists in their stalk
As heart roots dyed carmine and violet flirt

What is the force that moulds souls to fuse tight?
How fares the heart if that solder is cracked?
Does a man linger when death snuffs his light?
What gives him meaning in his final act?

Thought flows on rills, spanning desert and storm,
Two bridges leap over merging of streams
Two pools of eyes flutter icy and warm
The river's fierce flood ferries their dreams

The starlight fades soft, it trails as they soar
To unpathed waters, and an undreamed shore.
