By the eye
a star was seen—
surrounded by
blackness
in which it glowed
and shone
incomparably
it burned
hot
and was
admired
from afar.

And by that
seeing
captured and
held
to become
part of…
close
now
known.

In the hand
a star was held—
it burned
hot
too hot
and was
cast off
far
quickly abruptly
into the blackness
in which it glowed
and shone
incomparably.
