Summer Solstice

blue-star-night-image

The cram of stars in the navy-night

blue-light of summer solstice.

 

The majestic zodiac sprawled

across the ever-stretching sky.

 

Ancient definitions of myth

star-stories of pre-determined fate

 

mapped in the moment and place

of our birthing; such fantasies

 

such imaginings of stellar systems

and mankind’s significance.

 

Heavens and humours; rules and rights

from Gods to kings and subjects

 

All settled in an ordered Universe

until, curiosity, ingenuity and invention

 

observation and record, rigor and Science

with its license to question freedom.
