Nature type poem

"A Question of Stars" 

Stars' silken light 

scattered through the deep 

Black void of darkness 

Reflected, doubled 

on still water's edge. 

Hearth fires of the departed? 

Flaming spheres of physics? 

Fireflys caught within a net? 

Astrological pinpoints of destiny? 

God placed monuments to heroes? 

Place markers of the lost? 

Measures of fleeting time and motion? 

Gravity traps for spinning worlds? 

So, which of these is it? 

Which of these is true, 

Which can you prove?
