Smaller signs

File:103P Hartley 2 comet HST.jpg

There will be no comets now,
no pointing star to lead you where you know you must go.

Look for smaller signs instead, the fine
disturbances of ordered things when suddenly
the rhythms of your expectation break
and in a moment’s pause another world
reveals itself behind the ordinary.

Diana Gioia, from The Stars now Rearrange Themselves
