A Moment in the Universe


Stars fall

from high up places.

I lift my head,

raise my eyes

and try

to see beyond

the next horizon.

Follow the Sun

down to its bed

and think

that somehow,

under all these stars,

I am here

to witness this.


for a moment

in the universe,

and I think

that there’s a lot

of room

out there.

A long way to go,

and here I am

on this little

blue ball,

trying to understand it all.
