⁂ Asterism ⁂

Past, the star that dimmest shone,
Still lit the sky with light so clear
And bore its way deep through my soul
Still lighting paths my life to steer

Present, the star that’s flickered most,
Teaching me of love and pain
Grows still Wisdom’s silvery threads
In my heart, my hair, my brain

Future, the star that’s rising now,
Silent as snow falls on earth
Gently blows the embered heart
Warming, coaxing Hope’s new birth

Three distant stars, aglow they burn,
Beneath the endless sky we see
The Promise of the past delivered,
The Hope of future fulfilled and free

Asterism in midnight’s dark
And witching hour’s electric buzz
Continues now with approaching dawn
To point toward tomorrow, never that which was
