The teacher was speaking again:
"So if you see
the River of Heaven as a real river,
then each small star corresponds to
a grain of sand or a piece of gravel
on the riverbed.

**********

In other words, we ourselves are living
in the midst of the River of Heaven."


"Night Train to the Stars" by Kenji Miyazawa
