This is a somewhat revised version of something I wrote a few years ago.


July 27, 2017


Shining stolen beams
Through the window
By night
With no care
That they are not its own
The moon.

They glitter
Like tiny sequins
Sewn to the indigo sky
By the hundreds
Or thousands
The stars.

A campfire
For the planets
Its blazing surface
Gives them life
And warmth
The sun.

All of them different
Like us
And yet similar
In some ways
The planets.

Wonderfully perfect
And terrifying
Bright colors
And swirling shapes
The galaxies.

So gigantic
Couldn't possibly explain
How something
Could be that big
And beautiful
The universe.

    I love how you described the certain items, then stated what they were at the end of the verse. :) The most original description, I think, was the sun. :) I've never heard it likened to a campfire before, but it's very true!
    Keep up the great work!
    God bless!
