Mosquitos swarm in soft night air
where she wanders alone;
observes, with the awe of a child,
stars as bright as flowers
glowing in silent space:
Cassiopeia’s Chair, the Great Bear
and path of Silver River traversing heaven.
Her heart is light as reunion nears;
she wonders, “Where is he tonight?”
“Does he also yearn for
their awaited rendezvous?”
