luminaries

oil filled and topped off

ignited by wooden match

carefully set 

luminaries along my route

guiding you to me

follow my paper bags of fire

lining my front stoop

wax covered wicks

inside simple lunch sacks

flickering in unison

for your eyes

to catch a glimpse

and recognize those lights

as the same that burn in you

our candle paths leading

two our hearts

merging into one

lane of starlight
