Quasars, Moons and Stars, a Poem

Updated on October 30, 2012


The earthbound mortal

walks away.

(not very far)

from her cabin,

and looks up,

percieves quasars

points of light,

meteors in Persius,

bending toward earth,

if just a little...

confounded by the Moon's bright

scarecrow light,

and how the path is visible-

not just an unknown quantity...

Like Euclid in his ditch,

the earthbound mortal reaches

up to Hy points....

bemused, foolish and brave

enough not to belong...

One is high, and one, we

can only hope

is despicable low.

Neither is true of true fellows.

They may disagree, but in their

rising tide,

I might be any earthbound mortal...

contemplating the quasars

of the universe.

      Oh Lily, I do agree. Just night before last, I was confounded by that bright light. It was amazing and I felt so small and insignificant. Then I remembered that I love therefore I am important to God and reflect His qualities. As the light bends toward us, we reach toward it and at the moment of contact, all is at last understood. I wish I had been there with you in Alaska to see these sights and experience such times with you, my friend. Bless you with the love you so richly deserve. Hy
