The First Star, Plaza de Nazaríes, The Alhambra, Granada, Spain

The First Star

Through the clouds
Came first a star
Not enough
To break the spell
Of long dark night
But still a light
Come beckoning

Then soon I saw
Another star
Another then
Now several more
The mother bear
Who points the way
To guiding light

Now clears the sky
The night reveals
A sky of lights
Infinite
And always there
Beyond the clouds
Or light of day
The lights of suns

Rocky Mountain Starburst, Athabasca Glacier, From Wilcox Pass Trail, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

Stars ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #102

Aided by
Small aperture
In this starburst
Am I reminded
The sun is just a star
In blackness infinite
Speckled with
Uncounted stars
And this Earth
We sometimes believed
Like no other
Solar satellite
But now are finding
More watery rocks
Each unique
Though, really
Only to slightest degree
So I stand here
On our pretty stone
With some billions friends
No, all family
I wonder how
We divide ourselves
Such finite passing presence
What small precious number we
Who twinkle in the darkness
Each of us a star
Unto ourselves
In our tiny blip of time
We have no space
For hateful folly
Or shall we die
Utterly alone
Perhaps unknown
Pass into oblivion
In this expanse
Of possibility
