Today I’d like to write about the stars:

Today I’d like to write about the stars:

Enamored in vast depths unknown

collected in a vision of hope from home

freely scattered about our sky

hold wished from things that go awry

but it’s wondrous why they seem so small

if marked diamonds in velvet at all

are anything but farther away

than even tomorrow’s end of day

and if we are a length apart

at what measure does it start

from here we see all a person knows

then past that perhaps another grows

yet for now our sky exists

in a multitude of galactic mists

our stretch of solid view

shows stars before ours is new

the container of silence hums in modesty

to which we gaze upwards to seem free

and I’d like to think that while I stay

I thank it all for night and day
