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

Hope;

grasping at planetary specks of potential

aiming, prospecting, exploring, urging on…

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