Scattered from north to south

dotted like confetti

a night sky- rich as velvet

holds her children in her mouth

Sirius holds dominion

over Canopus and Rigil

and all others follow suit

-watching their brothers

to see who will obey

and who will revolt

But Mother sky holds her

children at safe distances

-apart

Bathing us with her aura

while sharing the constellation of

her heart
