Jessica Spaeth: “Ode to the Stars”

Ode to the Stars 

Burning brightly, yet the coldest of lights, 
Twinkling from far above our little world. 
Ancient and undying, yet some long-dead 
Even as their light continues to shine. 
Engulfing more space than one can fathom; 
To us small pinpricks on a black blanket. 
Though solitary within the vast void, 
They come together to form images 
That leap, dance, and crawl across the night sky.
