Stars Have Flown Over Us And Birds

stars have flown over us and birds;
stray angels and the unseen worlds
while we stay here:

stargazers, seldom on our way.
through the lens of Time we see
oh we intuit, God.

through raindrops, clouds dissolving;
through leaves, the green winds rustling;
pooled in dreams a deeper blue

than blue, the clearest waters
coming true; we live awash
in dreams but not in schools

where we are taught
to measure everything by one rule:
what does it profit.

and that singing without that is

for fools.
