The Universe Replied

I stared up at the January night,
sprinkled with stars whose magic, long-lost light
I still could see, and thought again how far
apart two points which seemed so close could be.

Oblivious to now, I looked around
the sky, astonished at the scale of what I found:
too far! Too wide! The furthest point you see
is still your home, the Universe replied.
