Universal Drifters - by Bob Atkinson

Universal Drifters
(c)2014 Bob Atkinson

we saw them twinkle in night's dark times
around that golden orb's clear lines
as if fairy dust pinched on
that circled moon beyond

beyond our world here on dry land
beyond those oceans edged with sand
beyond our touch with outstretched hands
beyond events we could command

twinkle of those newly evented
pseudo stars to us presented
grabbed imagination thoughtful
what could these be? good or awful?

here with feet firmly on this earth
we look at stars to define our worth
are we masters of this universe
or
merely travelers, drifting, useless?
