Cosmic soup

#NaPoWriMo, Day 2
“Today, I challenge you to take your gaze upward, and write a poem about the stars.”
Cosmic soup

Sometimes I gaze at the midnight haze
And see the Big Dipper just sitting
Ready to scoop its cosmic soup
Into my bowl, space permitting

Then I can taste old nights retraced
When the dipper dished out our dreams
And we, all wild and starry-eyed child,
Counted stars as they leapt to extremes
