A fun thick’n’thin singles yarn in bold and yet complementary colours

Wait for a cold, clear night and look.

Look up. Find the hunter.

Three bright stars on the belt.

Betelgeuse and Bellatrix mark his shoulders,

Saiph and Rigel his legs.

Found him? Go back to the belt.

See, sometimes only a glimmer in the corner of your eye, the sword hanging from the belt:

Suspended between Alnitak and Alnilam.

The photons falling on your eye were born in Orion’s nebula.

Photons, stars and planetary systems are all forming before your eyes.

Universal nursery.

You’re witness to a miracle.
