illuminating the sky
on the darkest night.
Luminous points speckle the blue
as constellations come into view.
Twinkling beacons in the blackness,
these orbiting flares offer a lustrous hue.
Celestial spheres sparkle and gleam,
their glittering brilliance sets the scene.
Blazing, burning, radiant beams,
flashing like something from a dream.
