Light-headed dance

What makes the lights dance in the mountains 

when I’m up with the baby at 4:30 am?

Why do they twinkle like orange stars

nestled in the mountainside?

Do my sleepy eyes create an imaginary heatwave

to make them shake and shimmer?

Or is it the night faires dancing–

flitting invisibly back and forth 

above the city?
