I saw these lights as our attempt to bring starlight closer to us to enjoy on a cloudy day or EVEN inside! We (well, I do anyway) have a fascination with stars, but stars are not to be visited by us - at least not in the near future. We can enjoy the feeling of starlight and stars by simply stringing some lights above.
We can bring our stars closer to us, though we cannot get closer to them.
This was my 15 Words or Less response:
Drawn to stars
Where we might never go,
But we can bring them closer.

It's pretty amazing that, though we cannot always see the sun, the moon or the stars, they are always there. Pretty comforting thought.
Happy Poetry Friday!
It's a Good one!
