What Is A Star?

Beneath a sky full of stars
Taking in the sheer magnitude of the universe
One cannot help but to wonder
What is a star?

A wish
A hope
Dreamers make their dreams beneath the stars
Lovers make love beneath the stars

A guide
A premonition
Astrologers study their positions
Using charts and angles
Some seek the miracles of God
The sea of twinkling lights
A glimpse into heaven

A mystery
A reminder
of our sheer ignorance
How little will ever be known
Questions will remain unanswered
Answers will lead to more questions
Our quest for knowledge
As ceaseless as the infinitude of the universe

Each star appears as merely a twinkling speck
But beneath a sky full of stars
It is I who am the speck
In awe
