Up above the mind so high
sits a star to unify
The splitting of form from formlessness
and other enigmas of existence.
This quasar of the illumined mind
orbits beyond all space and time
Showering down drops of light
that illuminate the mind's insight
Spurring the soul's ability to
change back into one, the one made two.
This exceptionally bright fireball meteor trail was photographed with a fish-eye camera at a Czech Republic station of the European Fireball Network on January 21, 1999. Of the star trails visible in this night-long exposure, the bright short arc in the upper left is due to Polaris, the north star. Photo: P. Spurny, (Astronomical Institute, Ondrejov Observatory)/NASA
