| A BOTTLE OF STARS |


S
omebody has once accidentally

spilled a bottle full
of stars diversified in
type, quantity and size


Nobody, however, was eager
to clean this mess.
Therefore, some of them
have found their place

They chose a cozy
corner of an uncharted
infinity which was later
transformed into the G-zone*

The spilled stars were
maturing in the care
of time and started
to astound curious beings

And so, the previous
anger passed as a
beautiful pattern was drawn
high above the Earth

It was called "The
Milky Way"; a divided
map of heavenly treasures
sounds, perhaps, even better

It still amazes us,
especially in the pristine
night sky not dominated
by the artificial light

Both known and mysterious.
Nevertheless, lonely. Therefore, it's
currently heading for
Andromeda**; the closest neighbor

It can make dreams
come real when Vega
meets Altair. That's, at
least, Tanabata*** tradition says.


Let's celebrate then
August's 2022 Milky Way Star Festival
together with AWB
#MilkyWayFestival
