Aglow in the Garden

Who are we, but sparks on the water

fading lanterns dipped in night

a wall curves around the garden.

at its base, stones where we sat

contemplating ritual smoke and

statues of deities overgrown

the lanterns are aglow in my eyes

but I cannot see clearly between

where the darkness gathers, night bunching its skirts

as a dancer spinning

we sit, lost in wonder

stars amidst darkened trees

we weave shadows into sound

we are all aglow in the garden

we are candlelight shed softly upon the ground
