Stars

Inspired by group members and Gary Soto’s poetry (particularly Field) in his book, The Elements of San Joaquin:

 

 

Stars

Stars bear witness to what humans cannot.

They are in our dreams.

If you look hard

You can glimpse

the Firmament-

showing the stars as portals

closer to humans than we think.

 

When you look up,

Do not be quick to understand-

For wisdom from such things

has not been made evident yet.

Indeed,

They may never be revealed

In a way that everyone understands.
