River of Stars

Look in the river at night.
Find your reflection in the stars.
We are a river of stars,

shining as one,
constant as the current
that pulls us toward the sea,

flowing between
the shores of time and space,
the shores of night and day,

one river without end,
one constant river
whose current carries us

over the ancient stones
that once stood in our way,
polished smooth by our passing,

rounded and shining
like stars in a river,
like stars in the river of us.
