The Sky You Were Born Under*

Looking up at
Midnight the sky
is amazing
Winter stars dancing
Through their paces
 
The view from outside
the city is unbelievable
There are things in the 
night sky you see
no other place
 
The Moon whispers
to the Stars…
This is how 
we made them…
how we gave
them life…
language…
their souls…
their true being…
 
Their place under
the heavens determines
who and what
they are..
will be…
will become…
 
If they only
listen…
Hear the ancient
words…
Heed the wisdom
And…
Learn the lessons
of the Old Ones
 
So…
 
They will be able
to pass this life along
to all who will come
after…
becoming one
with us…
the universe…
the Moon and
Stars
