by name (a poem)

the stars are known
     by name
each spoken into existence
within the dark expanse of the universe
in response,
they shine
as if there was nothing else
     they could do,
     they would do,
     they should do
their effulgence called out from within
     their depths
something of unique and timeless beauty
exists where once there appeared to only be nothingness
now radiance
everything forever changed
