they exist in their meaningful patterns
scattered through spaces
unaware of their age and movements
and unburdened by their weight

we learn of their formation, evolution, composition
their velocity and luminosity
we know of their distances and how constellations
change shape across the sweep of time

we see into the past by looking up at them
yet, they hover over us
grasping much more than
we ever will
