Orion was there. Cassiopeia too. They are dependable, always there, whether I go out or not. This morning I saw them at 4 am. The last half hour of darkness before the light from the east would dim the stars. I don’t know many constellations, but I can spot certain groups. Dependable. Placed in the heavens in those exact spots.
Two satellites going west to east. We depend on them also and I don’t see them very often, but I saw two this morning. Thank you, for doing what you do… whatever that is. Helping me in ways I don’t understand.
Two meteors. Streaking lights in the fading darkness. I always feel honored to be there when they enter our atmosphere. Burning up, dying in one final blaze of glory.
I thought about honor, in the dawn’s early light. Proof that countless are out there, doing things for me, things I don’t understand. Thank you. I don’t know all your names, but I do know a few. Dependable. I honor you today.
