His ancient brow

His ancient brow

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.

his ancient brow


grasping at planetary specks of potential

aiming, prospecting, exploring, urging on…

towards an uncertain outcome – the crucial calculation of our lives.
