Amid The Stars And Mystery - Poem by Michelle Claus

Amid the stars and mystery
We all record one history
And tell it to the universe
With voices brilliant and diverse

From temple in Jerusalem
And swaddle clothes in Bethlehem
From Ganges' purifying course
And Buddha's metaphysic source

From Mecca in Arabia
And sanctum at Olympia
From pyramids that soar from sand
And ancient stones that ever stand

From fire dances everywhere
And solemn solitary prayer
From existential liberty
And love, which sets our spirits free

Although our voices be diverse
We journey through one universe
To reunite in history
Amid the stars and mystery
