Thousands of years ago
people selected star patterns
and gave them names.
All societies created them,
made up tales, attached them
to stories they already knew,
made them a familiar sight.
Stories vary, names proliferate.
They are there, and we relate
as we choose. Like a Higher Power.
We can create them…by naming,
by describing, by labeling.
We can design our own
then as time passes,
as we come to know
this constellation of ours,
we can learn how similar it is
to others and to others’
and we yield to this constellation,
this Power whatever it is,
to guide our daily walk.
