Susan Hawthorne #318 Ourania

Ourania is an enigma
she is invisible in her starry robe
against the darkening sky
but each clear night we stand
watching her movements

darkness is in her she is
the dark matter that fills
the universe the dark energy
that sparks everything

in the day she has a golden
orb around her as she rides
the sky in a boat laden
with songs carries a globe
constantly spinning

Ourania full of magic
is the first astronomer
Uranian once considered
a tragic pronouncement

who knows what goes on
in that heavenly soul
she is old and young
she is light years away
and right here now

just as we are here
and are everywhere
but in fireworks of celebrity
unseen unheard unknown
