Lamp Light Moon

#Poem – celestial


Entering into the forest at night,
Far from the over-lighted, packed-in
Huddles of civilization,
The dark backdrop of sky is
Riddled with stars.

They look to me like an enclave
Of individuals: each one vibrant
(Even if not so bright)
As the next;
Their twinkling moments
Often come in waves of

In other words, it is apparent
That they are separate and
At the same time
Infinitely connected.

Imagine for a moment that this
Night sky is a mirror of all the
Multitude of shining, creative
Folk all over the Earth.

Lamp Light MoonAnd imagine that while they are
Clearly as varied as their number,
They are as clearly and
Infinitely connected.
