Here and There

"We never see this many stars",
They said
As Venus, Jupiter, Antares winked down.
A hint of the Summer's Milky Way
Still lay in mystery
Even after my hand waved across the sky
Tracing the path.
And then, finding Polaris/North seemed a miracle
To someone unfamiliar with dark nights.

A few days later... home,
I felt at ease in an ocean of distant light
Where two bears stood beside
A milky river of stars
Eternally waiting for a fish to jump.
The scorpion's heart throbbed red,
Two sister planets had yet to rise.
Dark was the night,
But empty it was not.

The wailing sirens
Now are happily replaced
By screeching owls.
