little stars

little stars

Little stars
twinkle faintly in the sky.
Great orbs in their own realm,
gaseous giants
sending life out into space
long before these eyes
perceived their shimmer.
Telescopes peer,
pursuing the depths
and mysteries of life,
wondering about
space and time.
Both are held
in the galaxy
sparkling in your eyes.


This was a prompt for a “little ___” poem from the poetic asides website.
