Distant Brilliance

I have such

A deep fondness

Of the stars


That can only be explained

By my understanding


That the stars are just

far enough away

That in them I can detect no blemish,


Yet they are just close enough

That I can see all their glory and beauty,

And exaggerate it

to my heart’s content

Without ever being told it isn’t so.


Stars are my hope

that fairy tales

May just exist


-Tanya LaReveur
