Astronomy

Instead of the news I read astronomy updates these days
which normally make me wobbly with the vastness of it all

but I have become obsessed
with the Perseus Double Cluster
which I am told you can see right now in a field at night
with just your naked eye

two young groups of stars
close in space
which actually means a few hundred light-years apart

one of them is named Chi
who is two million years younger than his sibling
and since the Chinese word Chi means the breath of life
my daughter and I blow kisses to that one the most

but the part I love the best
is that a family
so far apart
stayed connected
simply by their light.
