River Lights Shine

these memories of river lights
illuminate ten thousand nights
and sparkle behind eyelids closed between
and though in their remembering
they invoke thoughts of everything
these symbols are the standard of my dreams
for in their patterned shining forms
they keep me heading backwards home
still going forth to new horizon’s born
a dark midnight’s security
when spectres creep to trouble me
those river lights mark highways to the dawn.
