The little boat

out on the sagebrush sea
floating in blackness
under gauzy ribbons of stars
we stand amazed

one gold, one blue, shimmering
paired in perpetual celestial dance
too far for just our eyes to see
too far through the relentless black

holding still here on the undulating sands
in the unending darkness a tiny smudge of light
the porthole of our galaxy, from one into more
the farthest our eyes can see

so old, so cold, this light
we stand amazed
