"Stars Began to Burn"

“Stars Began to Burn” by Fiona Lovell Horning

“Stars Began to Burn” by Fiona Lovell Horning

If the journey gets too much

I’ll do my best to remember 

10,000 Christmas lights reflected in the eyes

of glass icicles & maple syrup from Bah Harbor 

of Li Po stumbling drunk beneath a million gold

lights twirling in van Gogh's river of sky

by Norman DeFillipo

A poem inspired by my work “Stars Began To Burn”
