Odyssey by Laurie Patton

Look up to the stars

the guardians of heaven.

We echo their brilliance

pulsate with their life.


In frigid space, incendiary,

their myriad numbers engage us

in recollected starlight,

the portrait of our past.


They move in eonsplendor,

passing near to some perfection,

reflecting dearly its infinity,

lighting our way through the darkness.
