⁂ 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, not what was
