The dark vault tonight
is studded with bright stars
that silent shine up there
they seem to chat amiably and
exchange smiles 
making you feel 
in front of an unveiled part of heaven 

But the beams of light
that come from afar
tell another story
lonely in the boundless void
far from each other
unattainable they are
in their desolation

Like the stars 
men on earth 
islands are of archipelagos 
without bridges and
without boats
whenever they are 
you can perceive 
the profound loneliness of their souls
