first poem in ages

Tonight the stars were so clear
thrown across the sky
breathtakingly precise in their randomness
and brightly sparkling
against the deepest dark

i thought about taking a picture of them
as i stood there staring
thinking of us hand-in-hand
under the nightness
sharing Polaris and Orion

i wish i could send you the stars.

Ahhh...stars! A beautiful reminder at the end of a long day that in the grand scheme of things we just need to enjoy being part of the universe.
