Darkening nights around me
Where chill of winter blows
A cold of quick surrounds me
Impeding the thought to go

Its creeping mental picture
Lies bare beneath the snow
A brewing storm descending
That opens – my void below.

Seven sisters, in the sky
Shining bright, for all to spy
A cluster of, stars so fair
Guiding visions, everywhere.

In ancient times, they were a guide
For sailor, soldier, and and those who bide
Their light in winter, shining clear
A beacon of hope, drawing near.

So let us look, up to the sky
And see the Seven, Sisters rise
A reminder of, the beauty there
The infinite expanse, place we share.

Breaking its wavelength
Ghosting its sight
Bathing in brilliance
Is its moment, of might.

A degradation signal
In a timescale shaking wave
Breaks its solar dominion
To cheat –
Its telemetry grave.

I must look up into the breach again,
To the wondrous sight in the sky,
And ask that I do understand
Of a star, that now wonders its why.
And the breath of color that sing’s its song
The lengths of its light shaking,
Through the shaded mist of history’s face,
The present, of its dawn, breaking.

Within my memory
Flashed from birth,
I feel the complexity
Of the vastness –

Both inner and outer,
Intricate and simple,
Chaos coupled to clarity
In a memorized meaning – of the now.

By brute force

Detracts, from a vision
Of a designed,
Streamed source.
