His ancient brow
Orion stands proud and strong
and looks down upon our ungrateful faces
with a mournful look on his ancient brow.
The lights in his eyes sparkle without boundary;
sparkle despite the ungrounded complaints in our minds.
Across his belt shimmer hints of Hope;
for a more inspired tomorrow,
for less fickle reflections in our reality,
for appreciation of the grace of which we do not yet know.
grasping at planetary specks of potential
aiming, prospecting, exploring, urging on…
towards an uncertain outcome – the crucial calculation of our lives.
