Slow burn

The night sky burns tonight
For the star dust is burning white
Aglow is the earth and the mountains therein
A distant shimmering sight

The breeze carries the embers
Distant corners of a diwali night
A river smokes and glows alone
With the burning white light

The night burns slow
A slow walk to nothingness
I step in and become it
Slowly burning away
