Dark night

Dark night,

of inky void that

flows with invisible ether,

you are dotted with the pattern

of ancient stars whose light

cuts through the void

and in time that is no time

makes its way to our eyes

and finds its place in our brains

that is, like the stars,

of ancient substance made

from that which the light comes

in a steady stream from this wide

and intimate universe.
