The pool,
surrounded by cattails
and wild orchids
dipping into the coolness,
beckoned me in the moonlight.

The shadows 
of the passing spirits
created each subtle wave
that caressed the surface 
of the polished glass.
Their laments lingering in 
crispness of the night.

In passing,
I chanced to peer in
and caught a glimpse 
of a person I knew once, quite well.
A person who once dared 
to saunter through the universe 
and play amidst the stars.

I stood for hours,
questioning the reflection
and wept.

And the pool invited me in.

The splash, as I entered,
muffled in the night air.
A comfort rested over my existence,
and I became one with the reflection.
And the spirits rejoiced,
gathering the shooting stars
that skipped across the evening sky.
