twenty light-years question

August 19, 2010

Don’t you wish that we were once watching stars as kids
and believed that Cassiopeia were also watching us back,
broadcasting radio signal, asking one short question:

Are you happy?

20 years later, we tuned in our radio in the moonlit garden
with our kids sleeping underneath the warm blanket beside us
and hear that old, timeless question over the night. We answered:

Ever since.

You’re the Perseid meteor shower I’ll never have to wait.
