How brilliant a star that transcends time,
its glorious light a flicker in a furtive moment.
Released in lost time before beginnings,
its shimmer a reminder of the eternal.
How small we are, how indolent our fleeting gaze,
upon a life in repose, caught in a snapshot of existence.
What life has come and gone within its breath,
a million sighs, no thoughts denied, enacted life.
Lost am I in perceptions of a dark night sky,
delivering inspiration and the significance of life.
However removed from appearance, we can but consider,
the breadth of being within our eyes.
I am overwhelmed by the perfection of understanding,
this grand scheme of life presented before me.
It’s echoes reverberating in the vast silence of eternity,
finding meaning in a tiny awareness such as mine.
Thankful I am for this speck of insight,
this revelation of eternal surrender.
These eyes that follow me are the refection of beginnings,
the knowledge sure that we are not alone.
