St. Cristobal

A new dawn arises.
One in which the sun of old
has red shifted away, has collapsed
and expanded, has swollen and reddened
and burst with every electron and molecule
its life blood, its soul energy, and it has buckled
into a distant, miniscule star white as the grave’s
effervescent tomb.

A new dawn arises.
One in which the dew of old
is not frozen as before; one where pedal
and plant awake to the fresh drops of the sky
sliding to their stems. Dewy dew drops drop catching
the sunlight in their eyes, reflecting the dreams
of old when love and mercy were in unison,
together, living for the stars.
