The closing flame


beat the shadows  
and the stars
into submission
 
pray
 
ask questions both
in life and in sleep
 
hold out hands to weave
the vast threads of that  
great beyond
 
be still  
 
burn wild flames  
long into the night
 
hold the words
of those spirits
 
thank them for presence  
for humble inspiration
in this world  
and the next
 
because the old ways  
are alive
 
they are beating  
their love
against the sky
 
follow their wings home.
