glittering mass of stars in a dark sky –
a sparkling river in the moonlight
silver buttons in a row.
gleaming rows of teeth
a row of icicles clinging to a roof –
shattered glass on the floor.
eyes twinkling in the candlelight;
dew drops in the morning light.
new love shining in another’s eyes:
breathless speaking. a whisper.
