The story of a night Standing cold toed on a mountainside. Above played out a grand narrative of stars and light and millennia. The Milky Way bound us all together Centuries of time. A moment in forever. Meteorites came and went. Bright flashes of joy or maybe a sigh. The stars carried on their business. treading paths they travelled every night. Order in the cosmos. order in the world. Cold toes were forgotten in this wonder above.
