The Stars Remind Us

The stars remind us we are not alone,

not isolate, not on our own.

Though space is vast,

and time spreads out transfixed,

the traces last just long enough to picture

in our minds the gods who set

the stars to guide us when we want to come

at last inside and call it home.
