Stars

Vitality and mortality
Matter and energy
Luminosity and umbrage
Gifts; from the furnaces of the Gods.

The lion, the fox, the hero, the bears
The eagle and the ram - our images of Earth
Reflected; the great patterns of plasmatic orbs.

Born of nebulous smoke,
Destroyed in divine fire,
Reborn from abyssmal ash,
The cyle of the cosmos; the celestial phoenixes.

Mysteries of the past
Captivating and inspiring,
Beacons of the future
They beckon; guiding lanterns in the Void.

Cyclic, immense, glorious;
Stars.
