Among The Stars


There; among the beauty of the stars lay a vision of heaven,
as per our limited perception and definition,
for we tend to see only within the span of our reach;
The heavens are mysterious, vast and awe inspiring,
much like a fervent believer's faith and position,
Beckoning points of light shimmer from the darkness,
angels, perhaps in a poetic mind, guiding us to contrition,
Lends inspiration to our hearts and souls longing to be,
part of the magnificence of God's family and creation;
The freedom of winged celestial bodies and infinite space,
from the earth-bound fears and self-made constriction;
There; among the beauty of the stars lay a vision of heaven.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
