April 22, 2016 Writer's Digest April PAD Challenge 2016 / Star Origin

Star Origin

yes the stars are our origin        we come from stars                  fairy dust and all

they light a desert sky       they are really always there     we just can't always see them

on dark                                       and stormy nights                   we can get lost

most of the time                         they light our way                    bright as fire flies

and sometimes seem so close    you could hold them in your hand    the native people

tell us                                         you look up                        and there are your ancestors

sparkling                                    in the night time sky              in your eyes

in your hair                                i see them                               and call your name

I love that idea of looking up and seeing the ancestors. There is another story about the stars being holes in the floor of heaven, where its light shines through. That one is African I believe.
