Starlit Night

Once upon a starry night, my eyes did close before I saw this sight – the moon’s bright glow; like a flashlight from heaven then I knew; I must be a descendant…

As the moon follows me as we drive, as I know because I’m only a child.
I watch in wonder of this beautiful night underneath the star’s delight. It’s beauty surpasses that of a rose and even though I find unknown to many a human, they know not about the stars in their quiet spot.

I will always love this silvery glow underneath the stars; what ho! They twinkle a wink and just then I smile as I sit and think in thought a while.

The stars they glisten as I watch their aura. Their glittering assembly fills me with power.

Their light flows through me and suddenly I know – I will no longer feel so alone. I’ll have the stars and Selene to guide me. And as Luna smiles and looks down upon me. She smiles and wonders where Bellatrix, Sirius and Ursa are; or the noble archer as he shoots from afar. Nearby the lonely star he shoots – I feel only happiness as I start to float. Upon realising that I am no longer on the ground.

I look down at my tree and see my body, so; this why astrological travelling is so charming! I float up to the moon as she descends upon me. As I am enveloped in celestial light – I notice that I may no longer suffer human’s plight.

For fair Selene and lonely Luna have made me one of their own as I twinkle with power. I find a home nearby the Ursa sisters. As I take my new name;

Scorpius – the constellation of stubbornness and pride with a hint of creativity usually known for Autumn’s time.
