Why do stars sparkle at night?

I look at the night sky in awe at the stars

Wondering why they are there?

Are they a celestial map for the angels

Or are they signs to us from the divine?

Or are the stars there as an accident

Or are they all there by design?

Are they actually just a creation of our own creative conscious mind?

Why, oh why, do the stars sparkle in the night sky?

Are they there just simply to be twinkling collage?

Dancing around Saturn’s rings

Light years from Mars,

Signposts for aliens to find their way home in the dark

After staggering out drunk from celestial bars?

Why, oh why, do the stars sparkle in the night sky?

Is it about quantum mechanics

Or maybe astrological rhymes?

Most are not new, they are as old as the arch of time

Though star field nurseries spawn newbies to join their display

In their mystical, mystery portrait sparkling away

Out there in what we know to us as cosmic space

In universal grace and I ask

Why, oh why to stars sparkle in the night sky

Forever this will always occupy my time and mind

But the one thing I know for sure

These stars are sublime

And are a masterpiece in the dark night.
