Walking the Sky

He walked through clouds and over lakes looking for the lost gem. Scanners melded with his eyes flicked from horizon to horizon as one step took him leagues.

Finally giving up in disgust, he walked toward the stars. Parsecs passed with each step, automatically avoiding space debris, asteroids and planets that threatened collision. Light fell behind, and the star visibly changed positions as he caught up with light that couldn't reach Earth for millions of years, yet.
