i count
these shy stars
in the night sky
like beads on an abacus

little jewels
to form shapes
like a fish, boar, turtle and a lion

each cluster
merging into a milky ocean
the cosmic flutist
plays a tune to which
all the stars dance

How open is your window,
  how tall is your door

How wide is your pool,
  how slippery is your floor

How fresh is your perception,
  how broad is your scope

How clear is your reflection,
  how real is your hope

How solid are your friendships,
  how many pray tell

How strong is your commitment,
  how deep is your well

How right is your grammar,
  how your words become strong

How your heart achieves freedom,
—turning verse into song

(Villanova Pennsylvania: September, 2016)
