Starcrossed: A Tanabata Poem

Tanabata,

Lovers separated

By the Milky Way:

A fated day

For lovers to be torn apart –

But hand from hand is never heart from heart,

Or so they say;

Yet who can know what long slow years can do?

Will I be more than me, you less than you,

When finally I leap the stream of stars

And meet you in the undiscovered land?

Will your hand know my hand, your heart my heart?

Or will we two be strangers, still apart?

I look across time’s starstream after you.
