from the ground we stare up at the stars
playing connect the dots
to create the outlines of hidden images within the sky
but have you ever flown at night?
if you look down from your window
you can create endless pictures and constellations
with the dazzling lights from below.
it's quite beautiful,
just like with the stars we don't know the truth behind the creation of these remarkable pictures;
is it a streetlamp?
a crowded baseball field?
a cozy home?
a car traveling down the road?
we don't know the story
yet we are enchanted by its beauty
i can't help but wonder is this what the stars see?
