When Taking Flight

somewhere sparkling in the night
through the dark shine beams of light
racing ever on until
bouncing off something that will

send a message to my brain
to let me know I'm back again
slower than the speed of light
that flees the stars in cosmic night -

knowing that I have returned
to where I left, where once I yearned
to travel to another star
in a blink, however far

out of body, out of mind
out of ordinary time
out of the solar plasmasphere
to Sirius, or very near -

myths of ancients long ago
spoke of travelers from Nommo
a water world with a red star
and Sirius A and B not far...

now I have gone and I've returned
discovering what ancients learned
that through the dark shine beams of light
which seem to slow when taking flight
