If you go out

Night after night

And if you get comfortable

Settle in for a long stay

If you look up

At a clear night sky

And see the innumerable stars

Cool and twinkling in pristine space

And if you are very, very patient

Could you, do you think

Connect all the dots

And what, I wonder

Would be the picture

You would uncover

Would it be the answer

To an unfathomable question

Something wonderful


And maybe you could sing

A song to the moon

And maybe, if you listen hard

You’ll hear it answer

And celebrate you solving

The riddle of the stars
