    Fantastic haiku!

    We are all migrants if you look at history, and this suggests this to me.

    It also suggests that at a great time of turmoil where mostly Western political/corporate/military agression against other countries, greater than that after World War Two, that we might need to navigate by the stars again.

    This makes me feel that many migrants (for whatever reason) have made incredibly brave journeys, often by night, and succeeded in finding refuge. Ironically, refuge can end up being the very Western country where corporate greed helped to destabilise a country for all the wrong reasons.

    I also love the crafting, and timing of the lines from:

    *…remembering

    to:

    **…the patterns of stars

    to:

    ***…migrants

    Fantastic work!

    Just had to, it blew me away, and we can't separately label people just because of their movements. Brilliant haiku.

    An interesting way of telling things which is absolutely insightful. The first two lines form the first part while the last line makes a perfect end.
