As they had heard
the sad song of two caged birds
lucky stars asked the Night
free them and throw us in jail.

The Night thought
two stars does not make
much difference
and agreed.

That is why
sometimes before the dawn
you can hear such a beautiful
and grateful birdsong.

Caged Stars © 2019– F.G.M.

Born on the Second Day
from a starless vault,
they waited patiently
for your first heartbeat.

Though they were huge
and blue
they were not complete
without you.

Night Skies
gave you Life
and filled your eyes
with sparkles of light

so that you can
fill the sky with stars
and give the world
a little more Love.
