...and was inspired to write this:

planetlight from lyra

hello. we can see you now, no need to hide-
we've felt your presence for some time, you know:
starlight moving slightly, like night branches swayed
by nocturnal, animal stealth; faint rustles of your mass
in whiteboarded equations and computer plots.
but those are cold clues for such a warm thing,
fire-hot solidity, sensed now across centuries of space.
you are no haven for us- you treasure your sun's gift
of flame too fiercely- but that is for later revelation.
you are but the first point seen, glint falling
into our eyes; like grains of sand your fellows lie
scattered across the galaxies, waiting for us.
come out, come out, wherever you are…
