Night Visions


I look up and
my head swims
with delight
making me giddy
with awe.
So humbled
one being
like all others
on this earth
gazing heaven toward
under a canopy
of stars.
with infinitesimal degrees
of infinite distance.
Each a quiet distant world
in one of endless galaxies
in one of endless universes
in one of untold possibilities.

    • Dear Kitt, Thank you so much.  The poem was written months ago.  Nothing now.  Are you having a quiet time now, too?  Just too much going on.  And I know you have way too much on your shoulders.  GOD bless you!  xx ellen

      • I am having a brief reprieve of sorts. My son has begun school this week. Though he studies at home most hours, having the structure of taking him to and from school helps us both. Looking forward to this year being better than the last year and a half,

  4. Beautiful, Ellen. There is something about peering into that carpet of stars that surrounds and holds us that puts things into perspective. There is a wonder to it, and a comfort, and you have captured this in your poem here perfectly.
