Legs planted astride I gaze up at the night sky
Upon high Orion appears to stare back at me.
Mirroring each other cosmically in time
The macrocosm reflects the microcosm.
We view each other pensively in the still air,
The 'Hunter' & the hunted maybe, maybe not.
I, a sentient, thinking, feeling human being,
He, a random chance of interstellar parallax.
The firmament blazes, Milky Way meanders
& Sirius sparkles like a jewel in a crown.
A shooting star wish crosses the sky then fades out
Like some cosmic firework display just for me.
Just a speck of dust entering the atmosphere
Joining all of the other specks, including us.
